William G. Hyland Jr.

Thomas Jefferson

A fascinating biography of Thomas Jefferson that presents an entirely new and provocative look at the final years of Jefferson’s life, as seen through the eyes of his most trusted family confidants. Based on fresh research and unpublished memoirs, it is also a riveting account of Jefferson’s adult grandchildren-Thomas Jefferson Randolph and Ellen Coolidge, who defended their grandfather through the Sally Hemings sexual scandal. This is the first biography that uncovers this dynamic relationship, piercing Jefferson’s private family veil through a first-hand account of the people closest to him in his last years.
