I actually did like this book. I think it gave a good history of George Washington's Mt. Vernon and all the things he did to improve it. There are a lot of wonderful pictures, paintings, and maps. He also went over what happened to Mt. Vernon after Washington's death which is something you don't hear too much about.

I also did appreciate that the author gave due credit to the hard work of George Washington's slaves. The thing that I DID take issue with was that the author comes across as extremel
