Description
New York Times best-selling author Jeff Shaara, son of Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Shaara crafts a sweeping saga of the American Revolution featuring legends John and Abigail Adams, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and more. Rise to Rebellion is a rousing narrative of the birth of the United States. It is a cold evening in Boston. Outside the Custom House, a mob of angry citizens taunts a small group of British soldiers. The soldiers fire a volley into the crowd, and five people die. Newspapers call the event a massacre, and a wildfire of anti-British sentiment ignites. Before long, patriotic groups swell with new members, celebrated leaders emerge, and radical ideas materialize that change the world forever. Reconstructing such events as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, Lexington and Concord���Shaara colorfully and meticulously chronicles the events that led a scattered group of colonies to declare independence. Master narrator George Guidall carries listeners back to the days when 13 colonies defied their king.

      • content: Shaara describes the people who were involved in and events leading up to the American Revolution in this stirring and patriotic story. From the Boston Massacre to the Boston Tea Party, from the midnight ride of Paul Revere to the Battles of Lexington and Concord, from Continental Congress debates to the Declaration of Independence--you are there to hear all. George Guidall's narration is flawless and involved as he captures the nuances of every event and conversation. History unfolds through the eyes of each participant, including Benjamin Franklin, Sam and John Adams, General Thomas Gage, George Washington, and many others. The first of two books, Rise to Rebellion encourages the listener to learn more about these important historical events, issues, and people. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from May 21, 2001
        Once more breathing vigor and passion into the dusty annals of our nation's history, the author of the bestselling Civil War trilogy (Gods and Generals; The Last Full Measure; Gone for Soldiers) demonstrates an ever-growing level of literary competence in the first installment of his projected two-volume saga of the American Revolution. Spanning the crucible years beginning with the Boston Massacre in March 1770 and continuing through the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July, 4, 1776, the story is told from the perspective of a handful of characters well known from our history books. In Boston, the Sons of Liberty activist Samuel Adams and his younger, more intellectual and oratorical second cousin, John Adams, speak out against King George III. In London there's aging Philadelphian Benjamin Franklin, who has resided for a number of years abroad, an agent for home colony Pennsylvania (and others). In New York, Gen. Thomas Gage is the ranking British officer on American soil. And heroic colonial planter George Washington has risen to full colonel in the Virginia militia fighting for George III during the French and Indian War. This masterful dramatization of the fateful escalation of the rebellion following the Boston Massacre moves from the battles of 1775 at Lexington, Concord, Fort Ticonderoga, Bunker Hill and the siege of Boston, through the convening in 1776 of the Continental Congress and the reading of the Declaration of Independence. Richly embroidered with portraits of such heroes as Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Thomas Jefferson, the tapestry chronicles America's plunge toward liberty. (July; on-sale June 12)Forecast:Ballantine is bringing out the big guns for this one: major advertising, a Boston launch, a 13-city author tour and Fourth of July Gettysburg media appearances. Simultaneous BDD Audio. Expect patriotic sales.

      • content: Shaara is best known for two historical novels that relate to the Civil War and for a third novel that describes some of those same individuals during the time of the Mexican-American war. Here Shaara, in the first of two novels about the American Revolution, "novelizes" the actions of the leading individuals from the Boston Massacre to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Victor Garber offers an excellent reading of this work. His rich baritone voice is a pleasure to the ear. Garber certainly understands that this work is a favorable presentation of the founders, and his reading seems to communicate Shaara's tone. The description of the drafting of the Declaration of Independence is both historically accurate and compelling. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
