Publisher's Description

The United States of America was founded and established by ordinary citizens just like you and me. In their struggle for independence, these heroic men and women willingly shed their blood, sweat, and tears—often sacrificing their own lives and fortunes in order to hand down the precious legacy of freedom we all enjoy today. Now is the time for a new generation of American patriots to rise up and join in the fight. Now is the time for every American to return to the virtues, values, and ideals that formed our foundation of freedom, and enable America to remain a great nation, a powerful democracy, and a beacon of hope for the world.

American Patriots highlights the heroic men and women who valiantly fought to secure our God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—not only for themselves and their children, but for countless future generations. Their stories are a true reminder of the extraordinary faith, courage, and determination that set this country on the path to greatness centuries ago, and an inspiration for future generations of great American patriots.

    This should be required reading in every high school history class!

    Taking a look at heroes of the American Revolution and how they were instrumental in the formation and foundation of our country, Rick Santorum has drawn from the “The Declaration of Independence”…”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” He centers on “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” and introduces Patriots who believed strongly in these areas and pursued them with their very own lives. Many of the individuals within this book were also firm in their belief that without the hand of our Creator upon our lives, we would all be lost. These biographical sketches draw our hearts and attention back to God and how He ultimately is our “life, our liberty, and our pursuit of happiness.” Without Him, we are nothing.

    Rick Santorum has created a wonderful history book! I highly recommend “American Patriots – Answering the Call to Freedom.”

    This book inspires me each time I read it. Filled with

    short stories of Patriots like you and me. The unsung

    heroes that made a difference between death and freedom. I

    liked it. Rick Santorum ties many of the fights for freedom

    with today's situations. Again making the relationship of

    what we need to remember and what we could lose if we stop

    paying attention to what is going on in our country. The

    book shows that everyone of us is important. Important to

    God and this country.

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from

    Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my review. I was not

    required to write a positive review. The opinion here is

    entirely my own.

    American Patriots by Rick Santorum

    Rick Santorum nearly became our president in 2012. Being the last man standing to oppose the frontrunner, Mitt Romney, he eventually conceded the race to him. Previously, Rick Santorum served the great state or, more correctly, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as the junior U.S. Senator for twelve years.

    The book is a great one filled with stories of patriots of the American Revolution. Some are well known, others not so well known. Each story is as unique as the person being profiled. Men and women hazarded their lives to break off the yoke of oppression and live in a free land.

    As a Christian minister, I especially appreciated how he began each chapter with a verse of Scripture. Many of those profiled were Christian in faith and included laypeople as well as ministers of the Gospel. However, he also profiled at least one Jewish man who helped immensely to finance the revolution and the newborn nation.

    I think that you will enjoy this book as much as I did. It is an easy read broken up into individual and group profiles in small chapters. The reader can digest it all in a small period of time or read a profile or two and then come back day after day and read some more without missing a beat.

    The book design is also a plus. The front has stars in a blue background across the top with red and white flag stripes across the bottom. Each page has a frame that is designed to look like an old book’s pages, worn with time. The sections divided as “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” each come with a beautiful drawing of patriots in action.

    Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

    A book that celebrates the unsung men and women who fought for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, sacrificing so much and even giving their lives for America.

    Mr. Santorum has written a wonderful compact read, that recognizes what everyday men and women gave up in the cause of freedom. A freedom that they believed enough in, that many of them gave their lives for it's cause. This book has 25 inspiring stories about these heroes, many of whom I have sadly never heard of before reading this book.

    Mr. Santorum tells each of their stories concisely, highlighting their passion for patriotism. I loved being able to pick up this book and read a chapter quickly, yet coming away with so much new knowledge. This book was easy to read, and well researched, with a real spirit of patriotism to it.

    I absolutely loved learning so much about the unsung heroes of the Revolutionary War, and was inspired by how much these heroes genuinely cared for their country and fellow man/or woman.

    Overall, this was an excellent book, that I would like to point out isn't just for adults but would be appropriate for ages 10 & Up as well, because this book reads like many short stories, but you actually learn some history! I immensely enjoyed this book, because I learned so much about historical figures, plus it was a pleasureable read! I am definitely recommending this book!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. Thank you!
