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 [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
