Summary

THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN-AND RUSH REVERE, LIBERTY THE HORSE, AND THE TIME-TRAVELING CREW ARE READY TO RIDE INTO THE ACTION!

Join us on this incredible time-travel adventure!

Liberty, my wisecracking horse, our old friends Cam, Tommy, Freedom, and I are off to meet some super-brave soldiers in the year 1775. Yep, that's right. We'll be visiting with the underdog heroes who fought for American independence, against all odds-and won! But not before eight very real years of danger and uncertainty. Be a part of Rush Revere's crew as we rush, rush, rush into a time when British rule had become a royal pain, and rebellion was in the air. We'll be on hand to see two lanterns hung in the Old North Church, prevent a British spy from capturing Paul Revere, and grapple with danger at the battles of Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill.

The extra special part of this trip is that right here in the twenty-first century, Cam's dad is a soldier fighting in Afghanistan, and Cam has been pretty angry that he is away. Visiting with exceptional American heroes like Dr. Joseph Warren and George Washington, racing along after Paul Revere on his midnight ride, and seeing the Declaration of Independence signed make Cam see his own dad in a new and special way.

But don't worry. Along with the danger, excitement, and patriotism, there will still be time to stop for a delicious spinach, oats, and alfalfa smoothie. No, wait-that one's for Liberty. The kids and I voted for strawberries.

Now let's open the magic portal to the past!


Author Notes

Rising from a Top 40 D.J. in the 1960's to what he himself refers to as "the number-one talk-show host in America," Rush H. Limbaugh III is arguably one of the most phenomenal success stories of the 1990's. Combining conservative politics with satirical humor and showmanship, he has built a nationwide audience of loyalists -- proud to label themselves "Dittoheads" -- who revel in his ability to skewer modern liberalism, from animal rights activists to militant vegetarianism and everything in between.

He began his career working as a teenager for the radio station in his home town and birthplace, Cape Girardeau, Missouri. His mother, Millie, once said "He didn't start talking until he was two, and then he didn't stop." His communications' abilities took him through jobs as a reporter, newsreader, and professional baseball marketing executive before he found his true calling as a radio talk-show host in Sacramento, CA in 1980.

Beginning with his first book, "The Way Things Ought To Be" (1992), Rush Limbaugh's writings espouse the same concept that he promotes in the broadcast media: liberalism is the cause, not the cure, that underlies our nation's problems. His solution is a return to the traditional mainstream American values of his father, attorney Rush Hudson Limbaugh. His Populist approach connected with a large segment of America, for the book quickly reached the top of the New York Times best-seller list.

In 1993, he embellished his theme in "See, I Told You So." Undeniably provocative and controversial, Limbaugh has more than his share of critics as well as fans. Yet, even Washington Post Book World reviewer and critic Jon Katz said, "Limbaugh has no desire to be taken seriously by journalists or reviewers." But as more Americans are learning every week, Limbaugh ought to be taken seriously."

In 2013 Rush Limbaugh made The New York Times Best Seller List with his title Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans. Limbaugh also made The New York Times Best Seller List with his title's Rush Revere and the First Patriots: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans and Rush Revere and the American Revolution in 2014.
