For those who's knowledge of the American Revolution revolves around the Northeast, Independence Lost will be an eye-opener. DuVal uses several personal accounts to trace the Revolution's path in the Gulf Coast, a region neglected in traditional histories. Scottish entrepreneurs, Acadian farmers, Choctaw-British diplomats and French-owned slaves are represented in this vivid account of British, American, French and Spanish struggles to lay claim to eastern North America. These varied narratives exemplify the thesis that 1776 marked the start of a global conflict, not simply a rebellion. ~ Reviewed by Nate George

With great pacing, striking images, and an honest voice, this one has an unmistakably Pixar-esque sweetness and breadth that will keep kids and parents wanting to re-read.
