Rick Santorum's little handbook spotlights American Heroes from the American Revolution. Some are well known names, Lafeyette and Nathan Hale, and some are little known heroes, like Peter Francisco and Nancy Morgan Hart. All of them have a story that deserves to be told and known, and this book does just that. Divided into three parts (entitled Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness), American Patriots tells the stories of men and women who fought and sacrificed during the War for American Independence. You will be inspired, encouraged, and educated all at the same time. This book is wonderfully well written and heart felt. Santorum is a strong Christian man with some wonderful insight into the stories he tells. This book makes a great read aloud for the family, and can also be read by children and adults alike. The reading level is probably for 12 and above. Some younger history buffs might also enjoy it. :-) I would highly recommend it as an addition to the homeschool history shelves.

An absolutely wonderful book to read!! I agree whole heartedly with another review that this should be required reading for any high school history class. In fact, the chapters are so short that it could easily apply to middle school students as well. Rick Santorum has addressed 25 heroes of the American Revolution and how they were instrumental in the formation and foundation of our country. He draws from the “The Declaration of Independence”…”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” He centers on “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” and introduces Patriots who believed strongly in these areas and pursued them with their very own lives. Many of the individuals within this book were also firm in their belief that without the hand of our Creator upon our lives, we would all be lost. These biographical sketches draw our hearts and attention back to God and how He ultimately is our “life, our liberty, and our pursuit of happiness.” Without Him, we are nothing. I found the Patriots in this book absolutely fascinating. Mr. Santorum highlights several women who served as marksmen and spies, a gentle giant who fought like a madman, a baker who fed George Washington’s army, a financial hero who supported the movement even unto poverty at his death; a bi-racial man who was the pastor of a white church for 30 years until the congregation realized he was “black” and asked him to leave. While all of these are not signers of the Declaration of Independence, they were most definitely instrumental in the foundation of our country and deserve our gratitude for their sacrifices. We also have a responsibility to teach our children the heritage of our country and how far we have strayed from the founding fathers original “Call to Freedom.” Rick Santorum has created a wonderful history book! I highly recommend “American Patriots – Answering the Call to Freedom.” DISCLOSURE: We received a complimentary copy of American Patriots: Answering the Call to Freedom from Tyndale Blog Network on behalf of the publisher, Tyndale, and author to facilitate our honest review. Positive remarks were not an obligation.

Captured by a twoleg, she was stuck for years, until she finally made her escape. Afterwards, she was attacked by her siblings, who had long since turned to evil. Believing it was her job to hand out justice, and avenge all those cats killed by her siblings, she fought her siblings, ending each of their lives. "Justice has been served," she'd said. After that, she roamed around, spying on evil cats and dealing out justice to those who killed many. She eventually came to the freedom chasers, and joined up with them. * Powers/Abilities:She's not immortal, but she can live forever. She often has premonitions, most of which she'd rather not share.
