Description
"In 1784, travel wrenched Thomas Jefferson out of the darkest period of his life. He sailed to France a broken man, but on the road, he rediscovered a world of hidden beauty and penned a guide he called Hints for Americans Traveling in Europe. During a crisis of his own, Derek Baxter dares himself to follow Jefferson's route. On a series of journeys (piloting a Dutch canal boat, hiking the French Alps, and fishing in the Atlantic), Baxter follows the obscure guide across six countries. But not all of his insights into the life of the complex Founding Father are pleasant. In Pursuit of Jefferson is the surprising story of one man's travels through Europe, led by Thomas Jefferson, and the lessons he learns about history-and himself-along the way"--,Provided by publisher.
