Publisher's Summary

There was a purpose in what happened to Johnny Tremain, but he couldn’t see it at the time. Johnny had been Mr. Lapham's star pupil, a clever, industrious apprentice silversmith, if not always well liked, at least envied by all who knew him around Hancock's Wharf. His skills had even been admired by Paul Revere, the finest silversmith in Boston. But when Johnny seriously burns his hand in a furnace, he finds himself crippled, without an occupation, and with no means of taking care of himself. It seems that fate has literally dealt him a cruel hand. Soon, trouble reaches Johnny's life in a new way. Swept along in the tide of events leading to the Boston Tea Party and the first skirmishes of Lexington and Concord, Johnny finds a job as message-carrier for the Sons of Liberty. As young and old men alike make sacrifices for a new country, Johnny prepares to take his own stand in the cause for freedom.

A treat for the ears and mind

This book is a treasure in the lexicon of American children’s literature. The narration is not to be missed. Great for the young and the young at heart. The history is fun and the humor that is added is great.

Great rendition

Awesome, AWESOME!!!
this is one of my favorite books, I have been a teacher, and teaching this book was a real pleasure. It's great to revisit it on audiobook. The narrator was fantastic. I'll be listening to it again very soon. Well worth the money!

One of the greatest historical fiction books ever written!

Profoundly moving storyline, historical accuracy and lyrical prose make this timeless. I'm 25 and still as enthralled as when I first picked it up at 8!

An amazing book!

My daughters (ages 8 and 10) and I loved this book. It opened our eyes to the hearts and minds of those who fought for our rights.
