About the Book

Longfellow s tribute to the famous revolutionary hero begins with the stirring cadence that American schoolchildren have committed to memory for over a century.

Now, illustrator Ted Rand brings these vivid and beautiful lines to life as dramatically as the poet s immortal message inspires.

We also recommend Mr. Revere and I which is an amusing retelling of this story through the eyes of Paul Revere’s horse.
