Join Rush Revere on another action-packed journey! Rush and his friends head back in time to the early days of our independent nation to watch the early American presidents George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson in action!
Hey there, young readers! Rush Revere here. I can’t wait to rush, rush, rush to history with our next adventure: a trip back in time to the first days of our country on its own two legs, free from British rule—
What’s that, Liberty?
Liberty wants me to say on its own four legs.
Anyway, as I was saying—free from British rule and creating a new government for the people, by the people. When one of the time-traveling crew from Manchester Middle School decides to run for student-body president, I take them back to meet our first three presidents and first ladies.
So, join us as we head back to those amazing and important first years, when we got to make all the decisions. Turns out, it’s pretty hard to lead a whole new country! We had to make new rules for America and set the path for the country we would grow up to be. And who better to be our first-ever leader than the general who won the war—George Washington!
He was the father of our country and made some incredible decisions that still affect how we live our lives today! But even so, President Washington knew that he couldn’t stay president forever or we might end up with a king, just like England.
We’ll watch as he makes his tough decision to step down to spend more time with Martha Washington and his adopted grandchildren, Nelly and Wash.
Then we’ll saddle up and ride into the presidency of John Adams, who followed in some very big footsteps with the help of his accomplished wife, Abigail. Then we’ll rush, rush, rush to the year 1803, when Thomas Jefferson continues the mission of creating America by making a risky decision to buy a lot of land from the French in the Louisiana Purchase, which more than doubles our size!
Using advice from the early presidents, first ladies, and a former U.S. congressman, the crew works to defeat an old nemesis. The question is— will it be enough?
What are you waiting for? Bring your curiosity and let’s giddyup!
A fabulous and uplifting book!
I am 67 years old, who has loved Rush and his sweet wife, for many years. This book, along with the complete series, has brought back so many memories of my younger days, and the experiences I had with friends. But above all, it retaught me things about our country that I never, ever want to forget. Thank you Rush & Kathryn.
Love those books
I lovvee those books and I’m nine and it’s just really entertaining but I love to read so I think everyone should read these books because they are not just books but they history books and fun books and it’s funny sometimes their are a few pictures
He's done it again!
I'm 54, have no children of my own, except 2 fine foreigners I hosted through AFS, and the daughter of a previous love whom I regard highly.
I own all of these Rush Revere books and my favorite part is that it takes this old coot back to my days at N. Potomac Middle. I swear, as I read the opening passages of this book; I felt I was walking the halls of my old 1930s junior high school. I could almost smell it, Taco Tuesdays and all.
It takes talent, spirit, and imagination to spin tales like these. Especially when the Author can be fancied to be, at the very least, controversial. All the books in the series show Mr. Limbaugh is far more than his Radio Show. I enthusiastically applaud his efforts here.
I'm not a fiction reader, my iBookshelf is full of biographies and histories. But, I'm proud for the few fiction books on my shelves that these Exceptional American series are part of my collection.
Read them with an inquiring mind about our nations history. I reckon, you too, will enjoy the time travel adventures!
