What does it mean to think, believe, and act like an American?

Too often reduced to a mythic set of lofty ideals, the soul of America is far more than a concept-it is a people. Even the most sacred principles mean very little unless lived out passionately by an informed citizenry.

In The Portable Patriot, you'll find a carefully assembled sampling of American history's most formative words, written by the people who were making that extraordinary history.

Speeches and sermons, essays and extracts, poems and proclamations illumine such values as independence, virtue, humility, thrift, prayer, and reliance on God. While peering back to the cradle of America's national identity, The Portable Patriot also points a way forward, compelling us to heed poet John Dickenson's plea to rouse your bold hearts at fair Liberty's call.

Crack open The Portable Patriot, and you'll discover..
