By Harlow Giles Unger. ISBN 0-471-74496-4.   Copyright 2006. Hardcover with 301 pages including 30 black and white illustrations and maps. Harlow Unger, author of 15 books, including the award winning "Lafayette", has drawn on private letters, diaries, and previously neglected primary sources for this new book. He reveals the humor, warmth and genius of the intensely human man behind the portraits and the stone face at Mount Rushmore. More than Franklin, more than Jefferson, Washington was a genius; a scientist, inventor, architect, scholar and entrepreneur. His brilliant intellect and ingenuity pioneered advances in agriculture, botany, animal husbandry, architecture and mechanics that revolutionized American farming for the next century, and left us the uniquely American architectural masterpiece---Mount Vernon.
A Mount Vernon bookplate, signed by the author, is included with your purchase.
