Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham gives us a complete vision of Thomas Jefferson the man, from birth to his last days—through the Revolutionary War and his years as President. We see the Founding Father who steered the states to nationhood, wrote the Declaration of Independence and, as a master politician and President, doubled the size of America through the Louisiana Purchase. With a readable and compelling narrative, Meacham guides us through the life and extraordinary times of a man often admired but, before now, never truly understood in all his complexity. Hardcover.
