In this timeless historical tale from Newbery- and Caldecott-winning author and illustrator Robert Lawson, a rebellious horse meets her equal in American Revolutionary Paul Revere and the two embark on an adventure that may just lead to the birth of whole nation!

Paul Revere didn't make his famous midnight ride alone. Meet a patriot unlike any other: Scheherazade, the mare who doesn't mind mentioning she was once the fastest and most admired horse in the King's army.

But on arrival in America, "Sherry" is quickly let down by her British rider and recruited by Sam Adams to join the Sons of Liberty. Before long, she finds herself teamed with Paul Revere to play a key-if unnoticed-role in the American Revolution. Full of wit and wisdom, this beloved classic presents an unforgettable view to the birth of a nation-straight from the horse's mouth!

Explore history even further in this edition, which includes bonus material, like a map of Paul Revere's ride!
