A thorough and intersting chronicle of the times in early political America, especially the approach to financial matters. Perfect for this era where finances are so difficult.

The book humanizes what were, after all, real people in real times, minus today's technology. So, like rag-time, the pace is slower and more rythmical, but many of the ideas of their day remain true today.

Unlike the other reviewer, I remain a fan of TJ, and I am also a fan of my own ancestors, including Benjamin Rush.

Like a Marion Zimmer Bradly work, this interesting story of Dinah from the Bible is told in a context of its times. A good, engaging read.
