Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"I'll be ready in a minute!" is a common phrase even today but in the 1700s a group of men in colonial America gave "ready in a minute" a special meaning. These were the Minutemen, who were expected to be ready for action at a moment's notice. When the call came, they would leave their homes, their farms, or their businesses right away to take up arms and fight together against a common enemy. Raatma succeeds in capturing the determination, ingenuity and frontier experience that gave these colonists the ability to challenge the most powerful army in the world and—before being absorbed into the Continental Army—to discover "that they would beat the mighty British!" These citizen-soldiers provided their own weapons, wore their own clothing and volunteered their own time for the minimum training they received. Most of them were under the age of twenty-five and their previous service had usually been to fight American Indians. Now they were called to fight the battles of Lexington and Concord, the opening skirmishes of the Revolutionary War which are the primary focus of the book. The identification of individual officers and men with quotes from their writings; an abundance of color photographs and prints; details of specific military strategies; suggestions for further research in libraries and on the web, along with additional study helps, make this book a useful introduction to early American history. This title is part of the "We the People" series. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 10 up.
—Mildred Hart
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Four enticing, well-documented titles that highlight aspects of our nation's history. Each one is appealing in its presentation, with large print and accessible information written in an engaging style. Revolution and Civil War focus primarily on women who played pivotal roles during these volatile periods. Biographical information is juxtaposed nicely alongside the political aspects of the wars. Minutemen pays homage to those individuals who fought bravely and heroically at Lexington and Concord, while Witch Trials delves into the hysteria that held captive the town of Salem in 1692. Full-color and black-and-white reproductions, photographs, and maps enhance the texts. The lists of important people are a welcome addition, as are the lists for further reading and Web sites. Fine additions for reports and for recreational reading.-Janet Gillen, Great Neck Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
