About this title


Drawing on dozens of new sources, celebrated historical biographer Hendrik Booraem illuminates the adventurous, fighting life of the father of the Democratic party. Beginning with the dramatic story of the Jackson-Crawford clan's immigration from Ireland and culminating with Jackson's entrance into the legal world, Young Hickory brings Andrew Jackson into sharp focus by examining the events that made him.

From Booklist:

The best comprehensive biographies of many of our historical icons--Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson, for instance-- amply examine the private lives of their subjects and devote substantial attention to their formative years before they became public figures. Many Jackson biographers have chosen to give short shrift to his early life, perhaps because of the relative paucity of available primary source material. Booraem, an award-winning biographer, has effectively utilized previously neglected material to shed considerable light on Jackson's family roots and his early life up to the age of 21. The youthful Jackson is here portrayed as proud, impulsive, stubborn, and all too ready to resort to violence when his pride or honor is wounded; in short, he resembles the familiar, mature Jackson. Although Booraem tends to speculate frequently on the causes behind the formation of Jackson's character, most of his assertions are plausible. This work is a valuable contribution to our knowledge about one of our most important and fascinating presidents. Jay Freeman
