by David G. McCullough [B Ad1m]
McCullough presents not just Adams, but all of his contemporaries as real people, not as distant historical abstractions. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, and especially Abigail Adams, are portrayed with all of their strengths, weaknesses, and flaws, in a way that helps clarify the early formative years of the United States. -- recommended by Peter J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
[Also available in book-on-cd, and DVD adaptation formats.]
