Hendrik Willem van Loon, the Dutch-American writer and illustrator, was an extraordinary character. Larger-than-life, he overflowed with exuberance and gusto, and he devoted his talent to writing popular history in a delightful way. Cornelis van Minnen has written an arresting biography of van Loon and is to be congratulated in restoring the memory of this fascinating Dutch-American personality with his vast appetite for freedom, courage, friendship, and debate
