You can tell simply from the cover this book is not interested in history. The Patriot on the cover is disguised using the warpaint and headdress traditionally used by Plains Indians, which none of the Boston Sons of the Revolution would have ever met, or even know existed (Americans didn't explore the interior of the continent in earnest for another 40 years). The Bostonians would have disguised themselves in the style of the Mohican, Wampanoag, or even the Massachusett people for whom their state is named. If they author does not see fit to get this basic history correct and instead wants to rely on incorrect stereotypes about Native Americans before you even open the pages of the book, then the entire veracity of their work is called into question. Skip this book and find one that will give your kids a more accurate telling of the Boston Tea Party story.
