America’s #1 radio talk-show host and multi-million-copy #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a book for young readers with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.


Okay, okay, my name’s really Rusty—but my friends call me Rush. Rush Revere. Because I’ve always been the #1 fan of the coolest colonial dude ever, Paul Revere. Talk about a rock star—this guy wanted to protect young America so badly, he rode through those bumpy, cobblestone-y streets shouting “the British are coming!” On a horse. Top of his lungs. Wind blowing, rain streaming...

Well, you get the picture. But what if you could get the real picture—by actually going back in time and seeing with your own eyes how our great country came to be? Meeting the people who made it all happen—people like you and me?

Hold on to your pointy triangle hats, because you can—with me, Rush Revere, seemingly ordinary substitute history teacher, as your tour guide across time! “How?” you ask? Well, there’s this portal. And a horse. My talking horse named Liberty. And—well, just trust me, I’ll get us there.

We’ll begin by joining a shipload of brave families journeying on the Mayflower in 1620. Yawn? I don’t think so. 1620 was a pretty awesome time, and you’ll experience exactly what they did on that rough, dangerous ocean crossing. Together, we’ll ask the pilgrims all our questions, find out how they live, join them at the first Thanksgiving, and much more.

So saddle up and let’s ride! Our exceptional nation is waiting to be discovered all over again by exceptional young patriots—like you!

    "Rush, rush, rushing into history!" So, you may think this is just another boring book about history. But it is far from it! Join Rush Revere, history teacher and iced tea poster-man, and his talking horse (yep, you heard that right! A TALKING HORSE!) named Liberty in their time travel adventures to important events in history, such as the Mayflower and the first Thanksgiving, which this book is about!! And let's not forget Tommy and Freedom. They're just regular kids in Rush's history class who happen to figure out Rush and Freedom's time traveling secret. When they get to the Mayflower, they are blown away. WOW, was life hard! Reading the story is like actually being there, and you get the full scoop about how life was like back then. And the first Thanksgiving is really cool, too! This book is DEFINITELY NOT your traditional history book, and also DEFINITELY NOT boring!! Written by highly rated national radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, this book is a refreshing take on important events in the USA's history! I highly recommend this book to ages 7+ and rate it 4/5 stars.

        Lol! It's hilarious. It's not one of those historical book that sounds like a textbook from school. It puts it in your point of view ,and it's amazing. I just started reading it and I just love it!
