The Revolutionary Paul Revere by Joel Miller

This was a great book except for a couple of small but bothersome issues.  One of the issues is the date format used by the author.  He uses a '9 September 1787' had it been something like '9th of September, 1787'.  The other issue is the way he used modern term to refer to the text.  He should have stuck to the same period speak.

The book covers the entire life of Paul Revere including his Grand Father's indentured service to escape his country.  Paul Revere had an incredible life.  He did everything from metal working to morgue director to dentist.  Mr. Revere or rather Bro. Revere was a Mason and server as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts.   He died at an old age and unfortunately had to witness the death of all his kids save one.

I recommend this book for anyone that enjoys biographies. The book does not compare to one of the longer books such as 'The Real George Washington' but it is worth reading.  It did however spark an interest in Sam Adams and will search for some books.

This book is kid safe.
