John Adams by David McCullough

My current book. Very detailed with many excerpts from letters between John and Abigael, his wife. Plenty of good quotes, but I have not had the time to highlight them.

guess I have to re-read this one. am about halfway through and will probably take another week or so to finish. this would have made a good summer read.

I have the paperback version, but the good color photos wee included. McCullough is a good story teller. I read his 1776 and it filled in many blanks on the first complete year of the war. Lacking in that book was good maps of the action. Instead David relied on period maps and they are hard to read. Someday I would like to see military maps superimposed over modern maps. It might help give a person a better perspective of space.
