Fine-tuned to give readers a sense of their personalities as well as their significance in American history, the succinct text uses details of daily life and short quotes from the Adams private letters and public pronouncements very effectively. Himler s graceful and well-composed drawings are brightened with luminous washes. A list of important dates in the Adams lives, source notes, and a selected bibliography are appended to this fine entry in the Picture Book Biography series.
