THOMAS JEFFERSON
National Geographic Society, January 2004
ISBN 0-7922-6496-7

As in the others in this series of picturebook biographies, I set out to show and tell the life and times of my subject as clearly and as vividly as possible. C.H.

"...Harness at her best, portraying not an icon, but a man immersed in the hubbub of family and political life. Diagrams of Monticello [as well as the President's House] and maps of colonial America, the Lewis and Clark expedition, and President Jefferson's world enrich the text." - Kirkus Reviews

OUR COLONIAL YEAR
