Thomas Jefferson, From Boy to Man by Jayne D'Alessandro-Cox



Thomas Jefferson-From Boy to Man is a biographical and autobiographical account of Jefferson's first 31 years of life (1743-1774), an era of his life that was virtually "in the shadows" until now. Written in journal form and supplemented with historical background text, the reader will be transported to the 18th century and get a "fly-on-the-wall" perspective of his childhood, friends, boarding school days, college and law years, romance, fire, earthquakes, flood, deaths and much more.  It includes over 60 photos, many rare, to enhance the readers imagination. It ends as Jefferson is retiring from his Charlottesville law practice to get more involved in politics with the Second Continental Congress, just two years prior to his drafting of the Declaration of Independence.

Thomas Jefferson, From Boy to Man by Jayne D'Alessandro-Cox  is available at Amazon.com.
