Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Though much has already been written about Andrew Jackson, this book demonstrates that there is still room for new findings and fresh insights. Booraem, who taught history at Rutgers University and the University of South Carolina, is the author of biographies of James A. Garfield (The Road to Respectability) and Calvin Coolidge (The Provincial). The novelty of the current book is that it covers only the first 21 years of Jackson's life, taking him up to the time when he moved to what later became Tennessee. Using published works as well as numerous previously neglected archival materials, Booraem provides a thorough and fascinating account of life in the Carolina backcountry. He relates much that is new about Jackson's family and his youthful adventures in the Revolutionary War. A chief benefit is that Booraem takes great pains to correct errors, traceable to the myth-making of early 20th-century quasi-historian Augustus C. Buell, that still appear in many books. Recommended for all public and academic libraries. T.J. Schaeper, St. Bonaventure Univ., NY

From Booklist

The best comprehensive biographies of many of our historical icons--Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson, for instance-- amply examine the private lives of their subjects and devote substantial attention to their formative years before they became public figures. Many Jackson biographers have chosen to give short shrift to his early life, perhaps because of the relative paucity of available primary source material. Booraem, an award-winning biographer, has effectively utilized previously neglected material to shed considerable light on Jackson's family roots and his early life up to the age of 21. The youthful Jackson is here portrayed as proud, impulsive, stubborn, and all too ready to resort to violence when his pride or honor is wounded; in short, he resembles the familiar, mature Jackson. Although Booraem tends to speculate frequently on the causes behind the formation of Jackson's character, most of his assertions are plausible. This work is a valuable contribution to our knowledge about one of our most important and fascinating presidents. Jay Freeman
