Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—For many, Paul Revere is merely an American folk hero as told in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, "Listen my children and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.…" But he was much more. Revere was a manifestation of revolutionary times, a member of an influential group of patriots, and a man who had to deal with the hardships of colonial life. Through primary source documents, including letters and diary entries, listeners learn about this Boston-born man who was a family man, a business man, a soldier, and a spy who met and mingled with our emerging country's elite and carried on as a member of a secret society. The narrative does a nice job of framing Revere within the larger context of civil unrest and tumultuous times. Nicely paced and clearly framed, this audio version of Paul Revere's life by Ran Randolph also offers sidebars that provide additional information. A worthy compendium to acquaint students with one of the individuals who helped shape America.—Robyn Gioia, Bolles School, Ponte Vedra, FL
