Paul Revere

by Jacob on 3/29/2010

The Revolutionary Paul Revere gives a good and quick look at Paul Revere and the American Revolution. It takes a deep look into the life of one of the famous, but mostly forgotten Paul Revere. I am usually very cautious when reading a book on history. Mostly because history books have a tendency to get bogged down in minor details and settings or the book presents characters or events in history and I end up spending a lot of time researching them to get a complete picture. This book has neither of the two aforementioned problems. The book isn't completely centered around Mr. Revere, so you also get a wider look at the people before and after the revolution. This book shows the inside life of Paul Revere's business and his struggle to make a decent living. It also goes through the various protests against the taxes from Britain. The book gives a nice perspective to anyone who believes the modern day protests get out of hand, they are nothing compared to those that happened in the 1760's. Overall this was a very quick read, each chapter exposing more of Mr. Revere and by the end you get a complete picture of one of the great participants of our revolution.

Product Overview

?Quick in the saddle and fast out of town.? Watch one of America?s most remarkable heroes come alive through fast-paced prose and gripping storytelling.

He?s Famous for his Ride. He?s Essential for So Much More.

The story of Paul Revere is the story of the American Revolution.

Always smack dab in the thick of things, he was an ordinary citizen living in extraordinarily turbulent times. Revere played key roles in colonial tax fights and riots, the infamous Boston Massacre, the Tea Party, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, and even the rati?cation of the U.S. Constitution. In this fast-paced, dramatic account, Paul Revere?s life pulses with energy as author Joel J. Miller explores his family and church life along with his revolutionary contribution as a spy, entrepreneur, express rider, freemason, and commercial visionary.

?The story of Paul Revere?a hero of Massachusetts, a hero of America?was never more timely. Nor has it ever been better told than by Joel J. Miller.The Revolutionary Paul Revere gallops along with all the drama and intrigue of a great novel, highlighting what makes Revere so essential in the story of America?s founding and its growth as a force for freedom in the world. This is a vibrant, vital, and wonderful story.?
