about this book

Meticulously researched, the novel depicts Jackson's days as a fiercely passionate senator who could barely finish a speech without becoming choked with rage, and follows his life as a land speculator, slave owner, Indian fighter, wife stealer, duelist, beloved war hero, and President of the United States. Byrd realistically and vividly recreates the life and time of this powerful, controversial, and contradictory man--an unforgettable portrait of an America in transition and a man as dangerous as democracy itself.
