From religious persecution in France to Colonial Massachusetts, Whiting provides a broad, fascinating account of one of the Revolutionary War’s most famous players. The Boston Tea Party, civil disobedience, secret organizations, and the power of media spin are just a few topics covered in this far-reaching tale. Whiting does a wonderful job conveying many of the fascinating facts and figures surrounding the Revolutionary War. The sentence structure is concise and easy to read. I would enthusiastically recommend this book for older elementary school children and middle school students interested in exploring our rich U.S. history. (Lane Education Service)
