While modern Americans view Washington, Jefferson, Adams and Madison as statesmen, these founding fathers viewed themselves primarily as farmers. They were dedicated to serving their country politically but their hearts remained closely tied to the land. This book details that intimate connection between these four men and the bountiful land they loved. It's a fascinating read for anyone who enjoys gardening and history.
