Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] splendid biography . . . Between Washington’s time and Lincoln’s, it is probable that no American was more influential than Clay.”—David S. Broder, The Washington Post

“A revealing portrait of Henry Clay, a man who was critical to the life of the nation in the tumultuous nineteenth century. Never president but always in the arena, Clay is a remarkable architect of the Union, and we owe the Heidlers a debt for bringing him to life in these pages.”—Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of
American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House
 

“Henry Clay’s unparalleled combination of skill, charisma, and energy are on display in this biography.”—James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of
Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era
 

“An enormously engaging picture of this man and his era.”—Heather Cox Richardson,
The Washington Post
 
“It is a measure of the Heidlers’ success that they rescue Harry of the West from his own legend. . . . [They] write with one voice and contagious enthusiasm.”—Richard Norton Smith,
The National Interest

About the Author
