Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow

Washington by Ron ChernowTitle: Washington: A Life

Author: Ron Chernow

Call #: B WAS

As Washington himself supposedly said “I cannot tell a lie” and neither can I; Chernow’s biography of the Father of Our Country may be the definitive one for years to come.  You will see Washington the icon become Washington the man.  An imperfect person who had a temper, could often put self-interest above all else and kept slaves even as president yet at great personal sacrifice as a warrior and public servant made America a home for liberty and freedom.
