Description
"Invites comparison with Crane's Red Badge of Courage . . . Ithink this is an even better book."-- The New York Times When you read this novel about April 19, 1775, you will see the British redcoats marching in a solid column through your town. Your hands will be sweating and you will shake a little as you grip your musket because never have you shot with the aim of killing a man. But you will shoot, and shoot again and again while your shoulder aches from your musket's kick and the tight, disciplined red column bleeds and wavers and breaks and you begin to shout at the top of your lungs because you are there, at the birth of freedom--you're a veteran of the Battle of Lexington, and you've helped whip the King's best soldiers...

Howard Fast's bestselling coming-of-age novel about one boy's introduction to the horrors of war amid the brutal first battle of the American Revolution
On April 19, 1775, musket shots ring out over Lexington, Massachusetts. As the sun rises over the battlefield, fifteen-year-old Adam Cooper stands among the outmatched patriots, facing a line of British troops.

Determined to defend his home and prove his worth to his disapproving father, Cooper is about to embark on the most significant day of his life. The Battle of Lexington and Concord will be the starting point of the American Revolution—and when Cooper becomes a man.

Sweeping in scope and masterful in execution, April Morning is a classic of American literature and an unforgettable story of one community's fateful struggle for freedom.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
