While visiting his uncle's farm in Maine and then traveling with his father from Boston to Philadelphia and Charleston, young Benjamin Wilcox sees rising anger against the British everywhere he goes. Ben's letters and journal entries give kids a fresh look at life throughout the Colonies as tensions build, violence breaks out in Boston, and events lead to revolution.

This series highlights specific periods and events from America's past and explains how they helped shape our country's history. Featuring lavish illustrations, period artwork, drawings, and photographs, the visual appeal alone is enough to engage young readers. The addition of carefully researched text that is both interesting and highly accessible led The American Library Association's Book List to name this series one of the ''Top Ten Nonfiction Series'' of 2004.
