Book "The Revolutionary Paul Revere" by Joel J. Miller

This is a biography from Paul Revere written by Joel J. Miller in 2010. It was published by Thomas Nelson also in 2010 and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through the Book Review Bloggers Program.
The book tells us the story of Paul Revere, an apprentice in this father’s silversmith, husband, father of sixteen children, soldier, entrepreneur and war leader. Miller describes with vivid language Paul’s financial struggle, the grieving father when burying his child and the fearless activist fighting for something he thought was a just cause, using his talents. But although this book was supposed to be a biography, it is also an American history book, giving some insight view on the infamous Boston Massacre, the Tea Party, the Battle of Lexington and Concord etc.
Joel J. Miller did a magnificent research job and he had all the elements necessary to compose a very boring book, but instead he transformed his research into a very enjoyable reading experience. It is a very inspirational book where we learn a lot about loyalty, hard work, and willing to help your community. I am not that much into Biographies but definitely this book is an excellent reading choice and also a learning opportunity for all history lovers or anyone wanting more information of the Revolutionary War.

My Rate: 4 stars
