Our third president was also one of America's greatest intellectuals. His immense curiosity, deep learning, and unusual vision fuelled his ambition and expanded the possibilities for life in the New World. Kevin Hayes, an expert on the everyday life of colonial America, brings a fresh sensibility to Jefferson's life story. This is a major new biography of Jefferson; it reveals him in an intimate portrait that is compelling for its careful recounting of daily life details (instead of the familiar political watersheds) and the attention it pays to his rich and full life of the mind, for which Monticello stood as a metaphor.
