Paul Revere Book Review

_140_245_Book.166.cover If you like reading about the American Revolution and its heroes, then The Revolutionary Paul Revere by Joel J. Miller is the book for you. The book reads like a novel and follows the life of Paul Revere from the immigration of his family in 1716 to his death in 1818.

The little stories within the big picture painted by Joel Miller were fascinating to me. Accounts like Paul’s determined effort to raise his family’s social standing, his involvement with the Masons and how he longed to pick a fight with the British, all made for great reading.

Although not a text book, I would recommend this book for anyone to get a private glimpse into a true American spirit. His exploits, mostly unheralded, should be part of any study of that time period. I plan to have my kids read it to add to their knowledge and appreciation of the Revolutionary heroes and their sacrifices.

Disclosure: I received this book free through Booksneeze.com in exchange for a review. I am not required to write a positive review, just a truthful one.
