Rise to Rebellion

Very well done. It provides a background for the Revolution which most history classes don't discuss in the detail found in this book.

One of the good books.

This book drove me absolutely BUGGY! But once their paths started to merge in Philadelphia, it became a much more easily read book, and when they reached the point of approving the Declaration, I was in tears of joy and pride at the way it was presented. Novelized? Yes. But well presented by the end.

Gets better as it goes along ...

t took quite a while for me to get into this book, solely because of the author's penchant for playing out so much of the action inside the heads of the characters involved. And since the lead up to Revolution involved principle characters who were separated and working their ways toward one another, there wasn't a lot of external interactions.

A treat in the absolute!

The author stays faithful to historical facts; but his incredible ability to delight in storytelling, is reminiscent of stories from a favorite uncle over a camp fire one wishes would never end.

Different true, but still good

I love these kind of books because a good author can make the history seem as real as possible. With this book the author follows the grand tradition that his father started with "The Killer Angles". Primarily the book follows Ben Franklin, John Adams, Sam Adams, General Gage and Gerorge Washintion.

Well rounded book

In his other books much of the action is centered around battles, that is not the case in this book. Much of the action is centered around the behind the scenes stories that led to the battles. I was very impressed with that aspect of it. Anyone who is even slightly interested in how the the revolution came about will be hooked from page one. Highly recommended this book.

Excellent...

A great look at the founding of our country using the actual writings of our Fathers. The story tells details missed in history books and is written in a manner that is easy to read and feel the emotions interspersed in the text. I found it hard to set down and can't wait to read the next volume. If you like history, this is a must read.

This one is quite well written.

A very interesting and entertaining book, a true insight in American history. The America that emerged by the end of Jefferson's Presidency was made possible by poor British military leadership, what amounts to a draw between the British and their imperial rivals, the outbreak of the French Revolution, and the unique success of the great Haitian slave revolt.
