This guy is great!
31 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know what I was expecting when I first tuned into American Ride, especially when Stan Ellsworth first came on the screen. I saw a burly, long-haired and mustachioed Harley rider with a gruff voice and denim vest. In two minutes, I was totally enthralled. U S History class was never like this! Stan is passionate about his country, and is able to present its history in an interesting and entertaining way. I have learned more about the Revolutionary War and its heroes than I ever knew before. Stan often explains battles by drawing on a tabletop. and rides his Hog directly to the New England sites I have heard of all my life but will probably never see. His eloquent narrative is illustrated with classic American artwork, and is have heard him get choked up from time to time. This excellent show needs to be seen by every citizen of the United States, whatever their age. I cannot praise this program, and Stan Ellsworth, highly enough!
