Overview

BOOTMAKER TO THE NATION, an ebook trilogy, dramatizes the Revolutionary War so vibrantly that people who "hate history" will find themselves totally immersed in the saga of America’s creation. Fifty years after the Declaration of Independence, two white-haired patriots take turns telling their epic story, Benjamin from the battlefields, Genevieve from Washington’s headquarters.
After eight long years, the Continental Army finally marches toward the battle that could finish this endless war. With help from the French, General Washington wraps his troops around the British trapped in the port of Yorktown, Virginia. He is poised for the kill.
Benjamin and Genevieve experience the full horror of war . . . for victory will not come without the taking of Redoubt Ten.

Editorial Reviews

Barbara Chaplin
"Bootmaker to the Nation by Dr. John Slade is the most outstanding American history book I now own. A fictional family, dedicated to their country and to their Commander in Chief, literally walks us through the Revolutionary War. The author has brilliantly made this family so real, you truly believe they were a part of the process." . . . "As a member of the DAR, I have read many books about America's Revolution. None of my reading has left me in such awe."
Bob Spear
"Bootmaker to the Nation is a superbly written historical novel." . . . "Slade's use of detail in the settings and the emotions of the characters are masterfully wrought. The reader is drawn into the miseries of soldier life with no pay, no food, and inadequate protection from the elements. This is a history lesson made totally realistic by the author's blending of a myriad number of facts with how they affected the characters' lives. We rated this book a very high five hearts."
Carol Hansen
"Slade brings to life the turbulent period from 1774 to 1783." . . . "To add authenticity to the story, he visited every historical site mentioned in the novel, read countless books, studied historic documents in the Library of Congress, and even worked as a "topman" for 10 days in the highest rigging of a sailing ship, so that he would be able to describe Benjamin's experience on a British frigate."
Joe Antinarella
"Now more than ever, when a renewed patriotism no longer rests only with government leaders, our American spirits and hearts are uplifted by this tale. Weighty and comprehensive, this story will be one that readers will discuss over and over. This is an exhilarating novel that will simply enthrall readers with its adventure, sensitivity and—most importantly, humanity."
Maureen Rogers
"Dr. Slade made the story of our great country come alive for me for the first time in my life. This book should be in every library."
