Review

The Minute Boys of Bunker Hill finds young Roger and his friends in the thick of the action again, this time just adjacent to Boston at the Battle of Bunker HIll. The awful specter of the battlefield, the hazards of prison, and the deprivations of the home front cannot deter him and his young friends from their patriotic duty. Once again, he stands side-by-side with some of the greatest men of his day, including Samuel Adams, Joseph Warren, and William Prescott.

Including reproductions of original illustrations, helpful glossaries, crisp typesetting, sturdy bindings, and clean design, these books are a part of an impressive enterprise launched by the Lost Classics Book Company to reurrect the ideas and values of an earlier, more enduring American civilization -- World, "Books," Jul/Aug. 1997

From the Publisher

The second book in a series, The Minute Boys of Bunker Hill is an exciting historical tale for boys and girls which chronicles the events of the American Revolution through the experiences of a young patriot named Roger Morse.

Boys and girls will be informed not only of American history, but also of the importance of such virtues as love of liberty, bravery in the face of tyranny, courage against overwhelming odds, fierce determination, loyalty to country, family, and friends. The author's upbeat and lighthearted style will delight readers of all ages. This kind of fiction is the best way to foster a more intimate understanding of our American heritage.

Recommended for Ages 8-12 BONUS! Includes a Build-Your-Vocabulary Glossary.

This is a great book! I am so sad that it is over. I am trying to look for The Minute Boys of Green Hill................I loved it so much. My Mom made me read it and after the first 20 pages I knew that she was right!!!!! Once again my Mom was right!!!! (just kidding) I would recommend this book to ALL kids..........boys and girls. It was kind of gross. And also, it was kind of sad. I usually do not like sad books, but this was balanced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My boys and I enjoyed this book. Literary critics will slam it for variosu reasons including the fact that it follows a fairly clear pattern. But ti works well as a fun, adventurous story that along the way encourages character and teaches about this period of history. We commend this book.

As an author of books on Bunker Hill, for adults and kids, I was pleased to find this reprint of an 1899 children's novel. Unlike many others from that time period, it is easy to read. If you don't mind the author referring to the central character as "the youth" and "the lad" you can enjoy reading this book. Though not as fast paced as modern children's novels, it succeeds in its goal of showing how teens in 1775 can have adventures. Most of the book is not about the battle.
