Summary

Summary

This book examines the people and events involved in the Boston Tea Party, which marked one of the first times the American colonists joined together to protest their treatment by Great Britain. Highlighting the individuals who participated in the tea party and helped in its planning, allegedly including Paul Revere and Sam Adams, it shows how the tea party became an event that invoked harsh reactions from Britain, and in turn, sparked the break from England that led to the American Revolution.

Booklist Review

Gr. 6^-10. In this solid if not particularly stirring account of the Boston Tea Party, Hull provides good context for the act that ignited the Revolutionary War. The narrative begins on the evening of the rebellion and then flashes back to chronicle the events that set it in motion. Hull expands the story beyond its geographic boundaries by reporting anti-tax sentiments from the other colonies, creating the very real sense that all eyes were on Boston as it dared to defy the crown. Although the departure from a strict chronological presentation may confuse some readers, the writing is clear, and the pages are enlivened by black-and-white illustrations, including photos of source documents. The appendixes, however, are a mixed bag: the time line and notes are helpful, but the index lacks some important access points. In addition, the short list of further reading contains mostly books published by Enslow or out-or-print adult titles. Such problems may make this entry in the In American History series a secondary purchase for American history collections. --Randy Meyer
