Summary: A biography of John Reed that starts with his birth on October 20, 1887 into a privileged family in Cedar Hill. The book follows Reed through his childhood and school days, and eventual entrance into Harvard University. The book then covers his worldly travels and his time as a poet, amongst other experiences that formed him as a revolutionary. A trip to Mexico during the country's social unrest served as a pivotal point for Reed, as it is where he strengthened his socialist convictions, and became a skilled journalist covering the potential of war in the country. Eventually Reed's journalism work landed him in Russia where he intimately covered the revolution. The book is a comprehensive biography of Reed's journey through revolution, war, and socialist thought, and outlines his role as a major player in world revolution.
