Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Revere (In Their Own Words)?

Paul Revere  Feb 11, 2006
Most people know Paul Revere for his midnight ride where he warned the colonists that the British were coming. There are many other interesting facts about him. He was a silversmith. You can find many items he made in museums today. He became a Patriot and joined many groups and clubs such as Sons of Liberty. I usually don't like history but this story was very interesting. After I read it we were talking about it all the time.
Bleak Biography  Dec 16, 2004
This book about Paul Revere's life, was right out of a history textbook. It told all about Paul Revere's life, from his birth and raising until his death. It told about his wife who died and his second marriage and children. It also told about his many occupations. I didn't really like this book. Mostly this book has allusion in it because it's a history book and it mentions a lot of famous people and battles and so on. I would recommend this book to people who like history books about the American Revolution. I gave it only 2 stars because it wasn't very interesting and I don't really like historicial fiction books.
Exemplary scholarly and still-interesting writing  Jun 24, 2001
Sullivan uses primary sources to make Paul Revere's life and times come to life in this fine addition to the new In Their Own Words series. Partly biography, partly a detailed history of the American Revolution, the book explains the famous patriot's role in a young colony's fight for freedom. Revere is well-known for his career as a silversmith and his midnight ride from Boston to Lexington to warn colonists of the impending arrival of British soldiers; Sullivan also brings to light Revere's part in the Boston Tea Party, designed and printed money, and was a shrewd businessman who owned and operated a gunpowder factory and a copper mill.
Primary sources include letters, poems and documents. Longfellow's famous poem that immortalized Paul Revere is included. The illustrations include a map of Revere's route on April 18, 1775, photographs of Revere's silver, a reproduction of his famous portrait commissioned by John Singleton Cooper, and many illustrations and portraits, including Revere's own drawings.
The book includes a chronology, an index, a bibliography, further reading, and additional resources such as the Paul Revere House in Boston MA. Photo credits are listed. Sullivan has a distinct talent for making scholarly research accessible to young students in an engaging and interesting way, and sets an excellent example for crediting sources. Highly recommended.
