A treat in the absolute!

The author stays faithful to historical facts; but his incredible ability to delight in storytelling, is reminiscent of stories from a favorite uncle over a camp fire one wishes would never end.

Well rounded book

In his other books much of the action is centered around battles, that is not the case in this book. Much of the action is centered around the behind the scenes stories that led to the battles. I was very impressed with that aspect of it. Anyone who is even slightly interested in how the the revolution came about will be hooked from page one. Highly recommended this book.

A Good Historical Account

This audio book was appropriately paced and had good narration. The story was well done and it is a good and thorough account of the events. This is a great listen to refresh yourself before visiting the areas where these events happened.

Solid Book

A very engaging book. I didn't realize how much effort went into framing the Constitution and laying the foundations of our republic. The final documents went through two stages, first supreme powers to the States over the Federal Government. Then after Shays Rebellion, the second draft shifted supreme powers to the Federal Government over the States in matters of politics and economics.

The war highlights and prewar conflicts were also fascinating as British Empire failed to grasp the colonial mindset of 18th century America. Since there was no one who represented American interests in England. The American Revolution was inevitable despite the odds of winning their independence.

I definitely learned more from this body of work, thank you.

Different true, but still good

I love these kind of books because a good author can make the history seem as real as possible. With this book the author follows the grand tradition that his father started with "The Killer Angles". Primarily the book follows Ben Franklin, John Adams, Sam Adams, General Gage and Gerorge Washintion.

Excellent...

A great look at the founding of our country using the actual writings of our Fathers. The story tells details missed in history books and is written in a manner that is easy to read and feel the emotions interspersed in the text. I found it hard to set down and can't wait to read the next volume. If you like history, this is a must read.

Can't get enough from Captivating History.

I read and loved American Colonies, this is a great read right after that. Very thoughtful and resourceful - many details I haven't heard before. My strong recommendations for history lovers.
