Description
Despite the reverence his name inspires, Washington remains a lifeless waxwork for many Americans. In this groundbreaking work, Ron Chernow shatters forever the stereotype of a stolid, unemotional man and brings to vivid life a dashing, passionate man of fiery opinions and many moods. Chernow explores Washington's fraught relationship with his crusty mother, his youthful infatuation with the married Sally Fairfax, and his conflicted feelings toward his adopted children and grandchildren. Chernow also provides a lavishly detailed portrait of Washington's marriage to Martha and his complex behavior as a slave master.
