In this wild ride, readers are introduced to Braven Young, a ten-year-old boy who visits iconic Washington, DC landmarks, meets famous historic figures and learns that with great freedom – true freedom – comes great responsibility.


Braven just wants some time to play catch with his dad. But his dad – an important politician – is always busy working to "save America"...whatever that means.


Struggling to stay awake at dad's desk one night, waiting for him to arrive home, Braven dreams about being completely free in Washington, DC. Hundreds of kids. No adults...anywhere. Finally, he is "free" to do whatever he wants and the National Mall is his playground. But, soon, things start spiraling out of control.


As The American Dream of Braven Young races to its imaginative and inspiring conclusion, Braven begins looking for the one person he knows he needs to help...his dad. Along the way, Braven learns valuable lessons about freedom from Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Thomas Jefferson - all echoing his mother's wise words: "Freedom is far more than doing whatever you want. Freedom is doing what is right."


Join Braven on his journey to save America! And discover how we all have our parts to play in The American Dream of Braven Young.




  • The true meaning of freedom is doing what is right - not doing whatever you want.
  • We can learn about important values through our nation's history.
  • Our gift of freedom as Americans should be appreciated and protected.
