It's Monday, What are You Reading? The Revolutionary Paul Revere

It's Monday, What are You Reading? The Revolutionary Paul Revere

This is the tenth entry for this meme, suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books.

I am now reading "The Revolutionary Paul Revere" by Joel J. Miller

From the back cover of this trade paperback book:

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 extraordinary 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 ratification 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 first few chapters have been an enjoyable read. I am looking forward to the rest of it.

Happy Reading!  ;-)

  1. Hmmmm....I am not big into historical fiction. I will wait for review!

  2. Actually, this isn't fiction... it is more of a biography... non-fiction is even better, with notes and references to actual events. I love the detail. I've read dozens on the Revolutionary era, and learn new things every time. MUCH better than what we learned in school. BETTER than fiction! ;-)
