Denise Price first visited Boston as a tourist from Denver, Colorado, and like millions of other tourists, she was amazed to find the history she'd learned about in school right in front of her eyes — from the Boston Tea Party to the midnight ride of Paul Revere.

And then she did something which no other tourist has done, as far as we know, she made a pop up book of the Freedom Trial, which is out now.
