Back of book:
“At a White House dinner honoring Nobel Prize winners, President John F. Kennedy remarked, ‘I think this is sthe most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.’
Thomas Jefferson was indeed an unusually gifted man. Although best known as the author of the Declaration of Independence and the third president of the United States, he was also a scientist, a lawyer, a farmer, and a musician. A talented architect, he designed the Virginia State Capitol, as well as his home, Monticello. A devoted educator, he founded the University of Virginia. Jefferson was also an inventor, and among his clever creations was a gadget with two pens that automatically copied letters.
This is the fascinating story of Thomas Jefferson, whose vision founded a nation and has guided Americans ever since.”
