KIRKUS REVIEW

Born in 1743 in Tidewater Virginia, Jefferson spent his boyhood in the Piedmont section growing up to be one of the finest men we have ever produced. This is a companion volume to When Washington Was Young which has been reprinted about six times. The facts are absorbing, our children should know more about this hero, about his friendship with Dabney Carr, his schooling with Dr. Maury in Fredericksburg, his joining the Flat Hat Club (now Phi Beta Kappa) his marriage in 1772 and so forth.
