DJ is Fine! In protective sleeve. An excellent gift! Brookhiser's canvas starts in colonial America, when John Adams had to teach himself the law and ride on horseback for miles to find clients. It does not end until after the Titanic sinks - Henry had booked a room, but changed his plans - and World War I begins, with Henry near the action in France. As with any family, there was a darker side to the Adams story. Only one of the four great Adamses was a kind man and father; the others set standards so impossibly high that few of their children could meet them. Yet, despite more than a century of difference between John to Henry, certain Adams traits remain the same. In this the story of our first and still-greatest family, we can all see something of our own struggles with family, fate and history.
