Introduce Young Readers to Inspiring Figures from Early American History
We live in scary and unpredictable times, and times of crisis call for heroes. Despite our recent obsession with all things superhero, real heroes are just regular people who rise to the challenge when the going gets tough–like the people who won the American Revolutionary War.
Some famous, some obscure, but all models of courage under fire, these ordinary people followed their convictions, took tremendous risks, and faced dire consequences should they fail. Yet they stuck to their principles, winning the most unlikely of victories and not only shaping a new country but reshaping the world. Now Pat Williams brings their stories to vivid life for children ages 9-12.
These engaging stories of men, women, and even kids who showed courage despite overwhelming odds during America’s fight for freedom will inspire young readers to face their fears, take calculated risks, and imagine a better future for themselves and their country.
