3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Candace Scott on April 3, 2004
Format: Library Binding
Though this book promises to uncover the childhood lives of Presidents, Ulysses S. Grant's childhood is actually given short shrift here. There is actually an abundance of material available about USG's life in Ohio as a young boy, but you won't find much of it in this book. His childhood is glossed over in a few pages, mostly concentrating on Grant's celebrated love for horses. The bulk of the book focuses on Grant's life at West Point, between the ages of 17-21, so it's really a book about his young adulthood.
I'm giving the book four stars because there is some interesting material about Grant's parents, including his quite miserable mother, who I believe was either mentally impaired or clinically depressed. Suffice to say she rarely uttered a word and gave her son zero affection throughout this life. The consequences this had on Grant's psyche were unavoidable. Also interesting is the material on Jesse Grant, the shrwed, tight-fisted, cheap and braggadacio father of General Grant.
