Description

"Popular history in its most vital and accessible form. 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."-Joseph J. Ellis, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Founding Brothers Les Standiford's Last Train to Paradise, the fascinating true account of the building of a railroad "across the ocean" from Miami to Key West, is already a classic of popular history. With Desperate Sons, the New York Times bestselling author of Bringing Adam Home tells the remarkable story of America's first patriots, the Sons of Liberty, whose revolutionary acts have become legend. With all the suspense and power of a historical action thriller, Standiford's Desperate Sons recounts the courage and tenacity of a hardy group that included Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock-radical activists who were responsible for some of the most notorious events leading up to the American Revolution, from the Boston Tea Party to Paul Revere's fabled midnight ride. Fans of David McCullough's John Adams and 1776 will be riveted by this true history of young men inflamed by the fires of common purpose who helped a new nation to rise up against its British oppressor.
