Set entirely in rhymed verse, The Story of Greatville: A Rhymed History Fable is an anthem to the American ideals of individual rights, limited government, and free markets. This quick-paced, whimsical narrative tells the story of a land called Greatville that is founded on these principles. Because of its foundation on these principles, Greatville becomes a haven of liberty for people all over and a beacon of hope for humanity as prosperity and progress blossom.
In time, however, Greatville loses its way when the people abandon these ideals and turn to government and power seekers for answers. Desperate for solutions as things collapse, the people call a meeting to find more government-based solutions. This meeting gets mired in turmoil until a young child delivers a powerful message, a message that unfortunately needs to be heard by young and old alike today in America.
This story is both a tribute to America and a warning that we have lost our way. It was written in the hope that America’s founding principles are not forgotten and that they can continue to lift humanity as they have throughout history. Never more timely than now, this story, this history, and this book deserve a place in every home, school, and heart that cherishes liberty.

Mark Ensomme credits his love of reading, history, economics, philosophy, and politics with inspiring this book. Mark wrote this book with the goal of presenting the ideals of reason, free market capitalism, limited government, and individual rights to his fellow citizens in a unique, simple, and easy to understand way. The Story of Greatville is the culmination of years of a labor of love toward this goal.  Mark hopes that this book will become a voice for these ideals and will be satisfied if it inspires others, particularly young people, to speak out against the growing clamor for bigger government and less freedoms. This is Mark’s first book. Mark resides in Tennessee with his wife and two children.
