America's number-one radio talk-show host and multimillion-copy number-one New York Times best-selling author presents an audiobook for young listeners with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.
It's the dawn of an important new day in America. Young listeners, grab the reins and join Rush Revere, Liberty the horse, and the whole time-traveling crew in this patriotic, historical adventure that takes you on an exciting trip to the past to see our remarkable nation's most iconic symbols up close and personal!
"Rush Revere here, along with my chatty horse, Liberty! Wait a minute.... Liberty? Where did he go?"
"Reporting for duty, Captain Revere!"
"Liberty, where did you get that spinach smoothie?"
Well, he certainly didn't get it from 1787 - that's where we're rush, rush, rushing off to next with our enthusiastic young friends in the Time-Traveling Crew (but not before causing a major security incident at the National Archives in Washington, DC!) A funny case of mistaken identity and a wild chase through the busy streets of Philadelphia will lead us to the famously introverted father of our Constitution, James Madison, and the heated secret debates over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Fast-forward a few years, and we'll help his brave wife, Dolley, risk her life to save an important portrait from the White House as the British set Washington afire!
What greater symbol of our exceptional nation's hard-won freedoms than the Star-Spangled Banner, sewn by American icon Betsy Ross? Perhaps Francis Scott Key can explain what inspired him to pay tribute to our glorious flag by writing our beautiful national anthem. But watch out for the bombs bursting in air, because when we reach 1814, we'll be front and center at a major battle to defend our liberty.

No, I feel like I have experienced this adventure. It was a fun journey, but more time is spent in modern day than other books in the series.
Rush Limbaugh's script reading sounds different than his normal speech on the radio. Over the series he has improved his flow. He now sounds a lot more familiar to his natural tone, and has found a new voice for Liberty (his talking horse)
Historical accuracy began to confuse me only because of how all over the place the settings are. Unlike previous adventures we do not explore each event chronologically in history. This impulse driven narrative and my lack of attention forced me to rewind at points from pure confusion not of what was going on but how we got there.Still the same appreciation is felt for the deep sacrifices and determination by truly exceptional Americans at testing times- like with the Pilgrims.
Previously I admired the Rush Revere series for exploring uncommon parts of American history. I was excited for the War of 1812 to get the Rush Revere treatment but unfortunately I do not feel it did justice to the exceptional era. We spent more time in modern day than the past and less time in that period than other historical events explored in the book.
Since it held my kids' attention (and didn't fill their heads with mush) I'd put it up there in the top 10.
Every time my daughter laughs at something Liberty does.
Yes, I've listened to all three with my kids on road trips and bed time. It's hard to put one in front of the others, but this third one was probably my favorite.
I wouldn't call it an extreme reaction, but there was a part that got to me. As an Army veteran, the part that affected me the most was when the boy (not good with names) was struggling without his father home. That hit home.
I would recommend this book (and series) to anyone who loves their kids and doesn't want them to grow up to be ignorant of America's rich history. Children today are ill-equipped to resist the liberal revision of history in public schools. This series helps equip them for the inevitable classroom discussion which may very well lead to a trip to the principal's office. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into this book! I am also thrilled that Mr. Limbaugh read the story himself. My daughter doesn't ask me to change the radio station anymore. (She has warmed to your voice.)
My kids loved all the books and learned so much more than if I read them a dry history book. Rush, they want more!
I will admit it was hard to get accustomed to Rush's voice for an audio book. I prefer it on the radio....but my kids don't care and that's what matters.
When it was over my kids blurted out simultaneously: "That's it?! It's over, all 4 books are over?!
Brilliant work Rush, you made our history (we homeschool) so much more fun this year! Thank you!
This most recent in a great series bogs down on information. The history is really informative but seems to take president over the plot development.
Great history info but compared to the other books it really seems to drag.
Once again, informing all of us, young and old, about American history. The story is easy to read but perfect for my 4th and 6th grader. Not only is it entertaining, thank you Liberty, but emphasizes how lucky we are to live in such a great country.
This is one of the most valuable apps on our phones. My kids get car sick if they read. Books keep them quiet. No fighting!
Absolutely. Rush Limbaugh has found a way to make American History appealing to kids. My kids were thrilled to find out this 4th installment had come out.
He makes American History interesting. I did not have one single teacher who managed to do that. I hope that my kids have a teacher like that. However, in the meantime, this is a great way to introduce them to the founding of the United States.
No, because it is too long. Especially for kids. But I did have to tell them to turn it off each night, if not they would have!
Rush Limbaugh continues to burnish his already impressive legacy as a children's author with this fourth in his series of Rush Revere books. I have listened to all four and find that the author is an outstanding narrator and interpreter of characters in his own work. He uses his considerable command of the language to create a vivid sense of scene and of personalities, using humor that would appeal to children of school age. It is especially gratifying to consider that the Rush Revere books are setting the record straight concerning the development of this country. Those who have been taught that men like Washington and Madison were somehow enemies of liberty will find their thinking rearranged by the truth that Limbaugh expounds in this book. The description of the writing of The Star Spangled Banner was especially moving and offered some insights that I had not considered before. I have to commend Rush Limbaugh for this labor of love in trying to provide for the rising generation a wealth of historical detail to buttress the argument that the United States is indeed a miracle in a world filled with tyranny. It is a lesson that those who occupy places of power in this country at this time would do well to ponder.
