Description

New York Times best-selling author Jeff Shaara, son of Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Shaara crafts a sweeping saga of the American Revolution featuring legends John and Abigail Adams, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and more. Rise to Rebellion is a rousing narrative of the birth of the United States. It is a cold evening in Boston. Outside the Custom House, a mob of angry citizens taunts a small group of British soldiers. The soldiers fire a volley into the crowd, and five people die. Newspapers call the event a massacre, and a wildfire of anti-British sentiment ignites. Before long, patriotic groups swell with new members, celebrated leaders emerge, and radical ideas materialize that change the world forever. Reconstructing such events as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, Lexington and Concord--Shaara colorfully and meticulously chronicles the events that led a scattered group of colonies to declare independence. Master narrator George Guidall carries listeners back to the days when 13 colonies defied their king.

Professional reviews

"Shaara is best known for two historical novels that relate to the Civil War and for a third novel that describes some of those same individuals during the time of the Mexican-American war. Here Shaara, in the first of two novels about the American Revolution, "novelizes" the actions of the leading individuals from the Boston Massacre to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Victor Garber offers an excellent reading of this work. His rich baritone voice is a pleasure to the ear. Garber certainly understands that this work is a favorable presentation of the founders, and his reading seems to communicate Shaara's tone. The description of the drafting of the Declaration of Independence is both historically accurate and compelling. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
