Synopsis
In his magnificent interpretation of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, Christopher Bing seamlessly weaves history and imagination into a rich portrait of an American hero. A meticulous researcher, Bing includes material that provides texture to history, maps that follow the British campaign to quell the rebellious citizenry, as well as the patriot’s ride into the Massachusetts night of April, 1775.

Documents firmly affixed into the book, including the British general’s orders to his troops and Revere’s own deposition relating the events, give the reader not only a visual experience but a tactile one as well.

Far more than a brilliantly presented history lesson, this book represents a tour de force of coherent artistic vision. In an extraordinary series of rich and moody “engravings,” from the mysteriously shimmering rigging of the British sloop, The Somerset, looming in a moonlit Boston harbor to the taut urgency of a man and his horse galloping at a combustible moment in the American experience, this book illuminates our country’s past unlike any other.
