Overshadowed by the lustrous presidents Washington and Jefferson, who bracketed his tenure in office, Adams emerges from McCullough s brilliant biography as a truly heroic figure not only for his significant role in the American Revolution but also for maintaining his personal integrity in its strife filled aftermath McCullough spends much of his narrative examining the troubled friendship between Adams and Jefferson, who had in common a love for books and ideas but differed on almost every other imaginable point Reading his pages, it is easy to imagine the two as alter egos Strangely, both died on the same day, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence But McCullough also considers Adams in his own light, and the portrait that emerges is altogether fascinating Gregory McNameeHere a preeminent master of narrative history takes on the most fascinating of our founders to create a benchmark for all Adams biographers With a keen eye for telling detail and a master storyteller s instinct for human interest, McCullough Truman Mornings on Horseback resurrects the great Federalist 1735 1826 , revealing in particular his restrained, sometimes off putting disposition, as well as his political guile The events McCullough recounts are well known, but with his astute marshaling of facts, the author surpasses previous biographers in depicting Adams s years at Harvard, his early public life in Boston and his role in the first Continental Congress, where he helped shape the philosophical basis for the Revolution McCullough also makes vivid Adams s actions in the second Congress, during which he was the first to propose George Washington to command the new Continental Army Later on, we see Adams bickering with Tom Paine s plan for government as suggested in Common Sense, helping push through the draft for the Declaration of Independence penned by his longtime friend and frequent rival, Thomas Jefferson, and serving as commissioner to France and envoy to the Court of St James s The author is likewise brilliant in portraying Adams s complex relationship with Jefferson, who ousted him from the White House in 1800 and with whom he would share a remarkable death date 26 years later July 4, 1826, 50 years to the day after the signing of the Declaration June Forecast Joseph Ellis has shown us the Founding Fathers can be bestsellers, and S both Book of the Month Club and the History Book Club have taken this book as a selection.Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
