Here is Andrew Jackson, "the People's President," warm-hearted Andy Jackson and all his vitality. Both text and illustrations show the two sides of his character: his strong points, his difficulties, for Genevieve Foster believes in giving to children a clear, true picture of a man's life, especially in an "initial" biography.

Boys and girls reading this story will easily understand the contribution made by Andrew Jackson to our democracy, and will not soon forget his dramatic entrance into Washington, or his loyalty to the Federal Union. They will feel, as they close the book, that they have known him personally. From the dust jacket
