Format: Hardcover
Let say that for those interested in the communications of the founding fathers, this is one of the books needed to understand that communication.
This book focuses on Jefferson and Madison both intellectual giants in the founding the United States. Jefferson most for his ideas and Madison for his valued sounding board to Jefferson and his finesse taking those ideas and making them part of the way of life as we know them today.
It is always a pleasure to read the letters that transpired between these two people. Most of us do not have the privilege of reading these letters first hand and have to rely on others for their interpretation. I find that this author does a fine job of this and offers good background to the letters of the time that they were written.
Those that are studying the founding fathers and especially Jefferson and Madison will like this tome, I did and I recommend it.
The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, The Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, and the heart warming chapter Take Care of Me When Dead were my favorites.
Again a must read for understanding these two men and the times they came from... I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

First, this is not an easy read, but it is well worth the time and effort. What you get from your troubles is insight to two men with values, placing country and citizenry above ego, party, and short sided solutions. Their abhorrence to the "Alien and Sedation Acts", an 18th century power grab that exceeds the boldness of "Obamacare", was brought down by the leadership of these two men. The Kentucky and Virgina Resolutions were not taught in any of my classes, but they should be taught to all Americans. Ms Koch does a very good job discussing the behind the scenes actions to persuade the State legislatures of the need to ratify the Constitution. And these two men were heavily involved in the first four Presidential Administrations, covering 28 years of a newly minted America, with the troubles that went with finding a place in the world. Well documented, exceedingly well researched.

Format: Hardcover
REED DESPERATE FOR IDENTITY. THERE COULD HAVE BEEN 7 OR 8 MEN, ALL DESCENDED FROM FIELDING JEFFERSON, WHO MIGHT HAVE FATHERED ESTON. ALL HERESAY, WHICH VERY CONVENIENTLY DISREGARDS THE TESTIMONY OF EDMUND BACON, THE CHAP WHO GAVE EYE WITNESS TACCOUNT TO WHO LEFT SALLYS ROOM IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING ON MANY OCCASIONS. GO READ THE THOMAS JEFFERSON HERITAGE SOCIETY BOOK CALLED THE JEFFERSON- HEMINGS MYTH AND GET INTELLIGENT INFO. REED'S BOOK IS ABSURD, AND MOST CERTAINLY A SHAM. NOT THE SCHOLARLY WORK ONE WOULD EXPECT FROM A PERSON IN HER POSITION.
