Overview

America’s #1 radio talk-show host and multi-million-copy #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a book for young readers with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.

MEET RUSH LIMBAUGH’S REALLY GOOD PAL, RUSH REVERE!

Okay, okay, my name’s really Rusty—but my friends call me Rush. Rush Revere. Because I’ve always been the #1 fan of the coolest colonial dude ever, Paul Revere. Talk about a rock star—this guy wanted to protect young America so badly, he rode through those bumpy, cobblestone-y streets shouting “the British are coming!” On a horse. Top of his lungs. Wind blowing, rain streaming...

Well, you get the picture. But what if you could get the real picture—by actually going back in time and seeing with your own eyes how our great country came to be? Meeting the people who made it all happen—people like you and me?

Hold on to your pointy triangle hats, because you can—with me, Rush Revere, seemingly ordinary substitute history teacher, as your tour guide across time! “How?” you ask? Well, there’s this portal. And a horse. My talking horse named Liberty. And—well, just trust me, I’ll get us there.

We’ll begin by joining a shipload of brave families journeying on the Mayflower in 1620. Yawn? I don’t think so. 1620 was a pretty awesome time, and you’ll experience exactly what they did on that rough, dangerous ocean crossing. Together, we’ll ask the pilgrims all our questions, find out how they live, join them at the first Thanksgiving, and much more.

So saddle up and let’s ride! Our exceptional nation is waiting to be discovered all over again by exceptional young patriots—like you!

2014-04-01
Supercool substitute teacher Rush Revere and his time-traveling horse, Liberty, take two students to 1620 to meet such exceptional Americans as William Bradford and Squanto. In a series of jumps, the amiable Rush takes football player and closet nerd Tommy and pretty, soft-spoken, dark-skinned Freedom (possibly Native American) to such significant moments as the Mayflower's embarkation from England, its landing at Plymouth and the first Thanksgiving. In their encounters, they learn about the Pilgrims' quest for religious freedom, the difficult conditions they faced both onboard and in the New World, and how the fledgling colony's relations with the local Native Americans were established. The presentation of history adheres to the standard narrative presented in classrooms for decades throughout the 20th century. Readers looking for Limbaugh's politics won't have to search hard. Tommy and Rush school Bradford in the values of competition and individualism, while Bradford and Squanto give thanks to God for seeing them through adversity. The storytelling that carries history, adventure and politics is breathtakingly inept. The rules governing both time travel and Liberty's remarkable powers are both inconsistent and so arbitrarily convenient they feel as though they were made up as the author went along. Rush and the children's interactions with historical figures are thoroughly wooden and elide the basic rules of the genre; Bradford never questions Rush's late-18th-century getup, for instance, and is stupendously incurious about their monthslong absences. The prose never rises above amateurish and often reads as though written by the middle school students Rush teaches: "Tommy plopped down on a random desk…." Although the faux parchment pages catch the eye, illustration, design and even proofreading (Samoset is consistently misspelled "Somoset" in the text though not in captions or the author's note) are as rudimentary and slipshod as the prose. The ever hungry Liberty provides needed, if lame, comic relief. A closing quiz leads readers to the website twoifbytea.com for answers. Exceptionally bad. (Fantasy. 8-12)

    So the two 1 star reviews are just really telling readers how much they hate Rush Limbaugh they couldn't be bothered with reading the book...

    Great book, really getting kids interested in and proud of their country's history!  More history books written to get kids interested and proud of how this nation was formed is exactly what we need.

    I purchased two of these books for my children today at the Barnes & Noble in North Haven CT after reading the first few chapters.  I'm
    a U.S. history teacher at a private high school here in CT and I must say that this book may just spark a child's interest in history. I'm reading
    some of the reviews and I must say that either someone let the left wing fuddie duddies out of the loony bin or the Common Core curriculum
    has tainted their minds with negativity. Amazing piece of literature, I believe we have found the architect who has laid the foundation against
    the fundamental transformation of this country. It's pieces of art like this book that will lay the landscape of our youth's minds and be the
    roadblock in the way a socialism in this great country. If you love your children, freedoms and  our country, you will get this book for your
    children.

    The left has a stranglehold on our educational system, and has been brainwashing our children for two or three generations now. It's time somebody told the truth, so thank you, Rush Limbaugh.

    great book, its great to see the right point of view( pun intended).
     I have read and seen history channel takes on the settlement of the pilgrims.
    they try so hard to shame Americans in being proud of this country.
    and show this country was founded in lies and by oppressing,and taking advantage of  others.
    I don't always agree with rush, as i'm more conservative libertarian.  great book my niece loves it  -Ricardo Pimentel

    You can't fool kids! They are brutally honest and I can honestly say they have LOVED the chapters we have read so far! They can't get enough of Liberty, the talking horse. And I can't get enough of the "exceptional Americans" that Rush introduces us too. And I love that the book teaches more than just great American history lessons. It teaches invaluable life lessons that will help anyone become a better human being! Bravo, Rush Limbaugh for writing a book that the whole family can enjoy! A wonderful way to celebrate America in our own home!

    Buying tomorrow and giving my son $10 to read it. I have not read it, but know enough to know that what is revisionistic history is what he is learning at school. I want my son to be proud of our nations history, for it is he greatest nation on earth... founded by god fearing people. This book is a welcome vaccine against our school's history.

    I teach history and Rush's version of this event is not what really happened. It seems that it is an attempt to change history to fit his political beliefs. I am sure that people who agree with his point of view will love this for their children, but others need to be aware that this author's version of the story is pure poppycock.

    What a mess! Time Travel? Revisionist history? A talking horse? NAMED LIBERTY?!! Talk about grandiose! Rush thinks he's a hero, a patriot. Paul Revere! What a load of nonsense! Nobody has done more to destroy our future than Rush. Children do not want to read a book written by a gasbag. Children deserve better than lies and demagoguery. ZERO STARS!

    This is a charming book for children growing up in a family were my father was a Principal of a Junior High School in NYC and a mother who was a reading Teacher in NYC any book that entertains young people and will get them to just read is a great book, and this one tells the story of America in a fun way that is what books are supposed to do. Flying cars like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Lions that talk after you go through the closet into another world The LIon, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Wizards who are children Harry Potter, tornados that take you far away from Kansas to the World of Oz, that is what reading used to be about. It is sad that some peoples comments here are based on thei authors name and not what the book is about or intended to do. Thank goodness children are more open minded. These are probably the adults who shout to stamp out bulling lead by example why don't you and open your minds and read a book. As for history, yes please go and look up Pilgrims and Puritans maybe some of the commenters would learn something. This is a delightful book, I always read the book before I give it as gifts for the holidays and this book will give lots of enjoyment. The illustrations are very well done although the horses legs are a bit out of proportion to the horse, but as I said it is a fantasy so if a horse can travel through time he can have spindly legs. Delightful.

    I've read this book and it is an attempt to create fact based on opinion and NOT opinion based on fact. Indeed Pilgrims were not Puritans. A simple Google look up can tell you that Rush! History is hallowed ground where we should all simply speak the truth. Even if that truth hurts. Those that say they want their children to be completely proud of our past need to understand they are no different than any other country. BUT shouldn't we be the country that doesn't indoctrinate our kids like Iran and N Korea do? Shouldn't we be better? Let's give our children something to really be proud of. Let's give them a legacy of real truth and not Pravda type double speak and misinformation to sway emotions. We do have a lot to be proud of, but thinking we should be proud of everything is a very immature and dangerous delusion embraced by those that are afraid despite their confident voices. The brave can stare real truth in the face - and it is not Rush's. "O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O'er the land of the free and the home of the *brave*?" Well, does it? Only you can decide.

    These people leaving one star are obviously hacks who haven't bothered to ever listen to Rush or read his book.  Like him or not, he's smart, funny and a terrific communicator.  Libs--your cheesy one star reviews are transparent.  Grow up.  This is an awesome book!  Perfect for kids and adults alike.

    Pilgrims were NOT Puritans by any stretch of the imagination. I like Rush but if you are going to write history, check the facts and don't perpetuate a myth that you were brought up with (he and I are same age).
    I iike the book, sort of. I like that it is told through a third person like John Jakes series years ago. But it is too Disney-like and very predictable. It uses that formula for kids cartoon movies. On Chapter 3 so will see how the rest of is. I hope it sticks more to the facts.

    I'm glad I got the book when I did, because it's nearing Thanksgiving, and my son is learning all about the pilgrims in school this month!
