Historic Figures, Colonial and Revolutionary America

About This Book

This historic biography explores the details of Paul Revere's infamous horseback ride during the American Revolution. The ride took Revere through a tremendously perilous passage with numerous narrow escapes. Fritz ingeniously fills in the details of the heroic trek with humorous, authentic accounts of this heroic ride through Boston, Concord and Lexington.

This story credits Revere with not only being the famous bearer of forthcoming peril, but also gives readers a keen look at the humanistic side of one of America's most popular figures from the Revolutionary War. Did you know that Revere forgot his spurs before he rushed off to warn his compatriots that the British were coming? Did you know that he whittled false teeth in his spare time to make extra money? Did you know he had sixteen children?

Illustrator Margot Tomes, known for her superb depictions of the colonial period, makes this book even more of a must read. Named a The New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and an ALA Notable Children's Book.

"A sterling biography." — The New York Times
