Editorial Reviews

Marian Kester Coombs
The books make American history interesting to children. Like when General Putnam says to his men, "Don't fire till you see the whites of their eyes," you feel like you're there!

I would recommend these books to other children because they teach you as you read. You won't want to put them down. -- The Washington Times

Read an Excerpt

Roger's heart almost stopped beating . . . What was this the British officers were saying? They were going to capture Samuel Adams and John Hancock and place them under military arrest! The two greatest men, politically, the colonies at that time knew!

"It must not be," thought the boy. "I must tell Captain Parker--everybody. Somebody must know where Mr. Adams and Mr. Hancock are stopping tonight, and warn them to seek a place of safety. And the militia and minutemen must be on guard, too, against the troops General Gage is going to send from Boston. That surprise must not be all on one side!"

With bated breath, he was on the point of slipping back into the kitchen, when he felt a cold, bony, hand on his collar. Wheeling about, he found himself face to face with a soldier.
