John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) spanned epochs of American history. He knew Founding Fathers; he was the son of John Adams, our second president; and he met Abraham Lincoln. He witnessed Bunker Hill; helped negotiate the end to the War of 1812; served as U.S. president for four tumultuous years (1825-1829); traveled as the ambassador to six countries; sat in the cabinet, the Senate, and the House of Representatives; and vigorously fought slavery in congress and in the courts. In hardcover, Harlow Giles Unger's biography of this energetic, multi-talented man earned positive reviews. Now it appears in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
