Portsmouth attorney and poet John Perrault has created an unusual tribute to the Declaration of Independence.

Jeffersonís Dream, released by Hobblebush Books, a NH-based poetry publisher, is an integrated arts approach to history and ideas, presenting stories about the founding document and eight great Americans through photos, text, lyrics music and songs.

Perrault, who practices with the law firm of Ahlgren Perrault & Pudloski and was admitted to the NH Bar in 1979,is a balladeer, teacher as well as a poet.

Wells, and Eleanor Roosevelt, revealing the connections between the Declarationís and the American Revolution, abolitionism, womenís rights, the Civil War, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
