Have you ever wondered, "Who really was Thomas Jefferson?" History books tell us that he was a brilliant scholar, violinist, surveyor, astronomer, lawyer, planter, bibliophile, architect, founding father, statesman, governor of Virginia, Ambassador to France, Secretary under George Washington, Vice-President under John Adams, our 3rd President, scientist, natural philosopher, family man, and sage.  Some much is known and written about Thomas Jefferson from the drafting of the Declaration of Independence until his death, but little was known about his first 31 years of life, until now.....

 

Thomas Jefferson-From Boy to Man is a biographical, autobiographical, and historically accurate account of Jefferson's journey to manhood...an era that was virtually "in the shadows".  You will read about his ancestry, childhood, adolescence, family, friends, boarding schools, family deaths, college years, romance, law practice, fire, earthquakes, flood, and more! It is partially written in journal form and supplemented with back-ground text to further inform the reader. It includes over 60 photos, many rare, to help enhance the reader’s imagination. Thomas Jefferson-From Boy to Man provides personal information about our iconic founding father that will help unlock the mystery that surrounds Virginia’s most beloved son.

 

As you read about Thomas Jefferson, the boy, you will realize how his early life years helped shape the personality, character, intellect, morals, and religious beliefs of Jefferson, the man. The book is filled with emotion, humor, personal reflection, and fanciful imagery, and includes many authentic quotes within the journal entries. Many say that Thomas Jefferson was complicated.  I say, "In order to understand the man, it is important to learn about the boy." Read Thomas Jefferson-From Boy to Man and unlock the mystery.  It is also now in audio book.
