About this product
- DescriptionA patriot by birth, John Quincy Adams's destiny was foreordained. He was t only The Greatest Traveler of His Age, but his country's most gifted linguist and most experienced diplomat. John Quincy's world encompassed the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the early and late Napoleonic Age. As his diplomat father's adolescent clerk and secretary, he met everyone who was anyone in Europe, including America's own luminaries Franklin and Jefferson. All this made coming back to America a great challenge. But though he was determined to make his own career he was soon embarked, as Washington's appointment, on his phemenal work abroad, as well as on a deeply troubled though loving and enduring marriage. But through all the emotional turmoil, he dedicated his life to serving his country. Deeply researched and beautifully written, The Remarkable Education of John Quincy Adams is the definitive biography of the formative years of one of the most fascinating and towering early Americans.
