Description
In a gripping account that reads more like historical fiction, the author of Last Train to Paradise and Bringing Adam Home here recounts the courage and tenacity of the Sons of Liberty, a hardy group that included Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock. These are not the starched Founding Fathers but radical activists, responsible for some of the most notorious events leading up to the American Revolution, from the Boston Tea Party to Paul Revere's midnight ride.

"Popular history in its most vital and accessible form. [Les] Standiford has recovered the mentality of America's first group of young radicals, the Sons of Liberty, and tells their story with flair and grace."óJoseph J. Ellis
