Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere....

So begins Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's stirring tale of Paul Revere's ride and the first battle cry for American independence. Written over a century ago, the words still resonate today.

Now acclaimed artist Charles Santore has turned his attention to this historic event, immortalized in Longfellow's poem. Paul Revere, his horse, the Old North Church, the lantern, Lexington and Concord—all spring from these pages, and make that famous race against time live once again.

  Paul Revere's Ride
Ethan of Salem, OR, 8/29/2016
This book of poetry is very fun. It's about Paul Revere riding to alert the militia at the beginning of the American Revolution. My favorite part is when he sends his dog home with a note and he returns with fabric to muffle the sound of the oars in his boat. Longfellow's words really draw the reader into the action.
