Mr. Revere and I

Historical Fiction

This engaging tale tells the story of the early days of the American Revolution through the eyes of a single horse, who goes from being the steed of a British officer to the mount of Paul Revere (and the adored pet of his children).

Through her ears we eavesdrop on the conversations that planted the seeds of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. There was no haughtier stepper in the regiment than Scheherazade, no loftier champion of royalty and privilege.

Naturally, the fall of this mare was equally great, even to the glue factory; and still more remarkable was the transformation which took place slowly but surely after Sam Adams talked her out of the glue cart into the home of a patriot, and soon the mare knew all about the Revere family, the trade of the silversmith, and the doings of The Sons of Liberty.
