Saved from the glue factory by Sam Adams, Sheherazade the mare tells the story of her famous midnight ride with Paul Revere that changed American history forever. A purebred English horse, Sherry grows from a conceited military horse into a true patriot who helps the Sons of Liberty during the American Revolution. Great fun for children and adults alike, this is a riveting, often humorous tale of the birth of our country--straight from the horse's mouth!
