The American Revolution has begun - and Rush Revere, liberty the horse, and the time-traveling crew are ready to ride into the action!
Join us on this incredible time-travel adventure!
Liberty, my wisecracking horse, our old friends Cam, Tommy, Freedom, and I are off to meet some super-brave soldiers in the year 1775. Yep, that’s right. We’ll be visiting with the underdog heroes who fought for American independence, against all odds - and won! But not before eight very real years of danger and uncertainty. Be a part of Rush Revere’s crew as we rush, rush, rush into a time when British rule had become a royal pain, and rebellion was in the air. We’ll be on hand to see two lanterns hungin the Old North Church, prevent a British spy from capturing Paul Revere, and grapple with danger at the battles of Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill.
The extra-special part of this trip is that right here in the twenty-first century, Cam’s dad is a soldier fighting in Afghanistan, and Cam has been pretty angry that he is away. Visiting with exceptional American heroes like Dr. Joseph Warren and George Washington, racing along after Paul Revere on his midnight ride, and seeing the Declaration of Independence signed make Cam see his own dad in a new and special way.
But don’t worry. Along with the danger, excitement, and patriotism, there will still be time to stop for a delicious spinach, oats, and alfalfa smoothie. No, wait—that one’s for Liberty. The kids and I voted for strawberries.
Now let’s open the magic portal to the past!

This is a very entertaining book and will help you and your child learn a little history along the way. Rush narrates this himself and does a great job.
If you've read his first two history books and enjoyed them, you'll like this one as well.... same general set up just different history lesson.
Recommend for just about any age.
We loved listening to this audio book when we were driving long hours on a trip recently. It helped the drive just fly by, timing wise. The story is excellent and very inspiring. We laughed out loud quite a few times and felt emotional too. We felt like we were right there with them and feared for their lives now and then. We also learned a lot about history.
The information was so amazing that at times I wondered if the author was making things up?...but then remembered the basis for the book series... American History...which made the book a truly amazing thing to listen to. Great Job! Thank you Rush and to all--who I am sure worked so hard to put the Rush Revere series together. I was never taught an history in this much detail... Thank you for digging deep.
This story needed additional voices. Hours and hours of the same narrator gets tiresome.
Rush Limbaugh is in the center of it. I like him on the radio, but this story badly needed less of him.
Cam, the boy.
Too much talking to the horse. Too much emoting by Limbaugh. The modern-day dodgeball game also seemed like too much. I know why it's supposed to be relevant, but it's pretty ham-handed even for a children's story.
I loved listening to these stories on my way to work. I learned things I never knew about American history. Stories are much easier to remember than cold facts.
