Tree of Liberty

Award-Winning Political Thriller

“When the State declares the people “Enemies of the State” they admit the State is the enemy of the people”


From the deck of the USS Hornet in 1942, to the mountains of Afghanistan in 2001, to the streets of Washington D.C. in 2020 the Bradley family has fought against tyranny in all its forms. One family’s dedication to preserving freedom for future generations is told through this epic novel. Who will lead America’s second revolution against tyranny? Who among us will dare to rise up against the tyrants in D.C. who squabble for dominion over the rights, fortunes and lives of the America people?

Curtiss Bradley is one of those revolutionaries.

The only child of a Doolittle Raider, orphaned then weaned at the Milton Hershey School for Orphaned Boys, Curtiss comes of age on Wall Street’s fast track during America’s roaring 1980s. That is until a love obsession for an enchanting foreign student entices Curtiss on a global journey where he discovers himself and his father’s love of country.

He returns 30 years later to find the America he knew gone after the bill comes due for decades of debt-driven economics in the Great Depression of the Twenty Teens, when in desperation Americans embrace defunct communist-style statism, and in the process lose their most precious inheritance: their freedom.

Will Curtiss live up to his father’s war-hero legacy? Can he preserve the American dream for his son by launching the shot heard ’round the world in 2020 and rescue America from its post-constitutional dystopia?

The Tree of Liberty is a 30-year sweeping epic that takes readers on a journey around the world and across the spectrum of the human spirit.
