The Sage of Monticello is the sixth and final volume of distinguished historian Dumas Malone’s epic masterwork, Jefferson and His Time, a biography begun in 1943 and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1975. More wide ranging than the preceding volumes, The Sage of Monticello brilliantly recounts the accomplishments, friendships, and family difficulties of Jefferson’s last seventeen years—including his retirement from the presidency, his correspondence with John Adams and James Madison, his personal tribulations and debt, and his major role in the founding of the Library of Congress and the University of Virginia. Revealing Jefferson’s shift from the realm of politics to his roles as family man, architect, and educational enthusiast, this is a fitting final chapter in the life of one of America’s greatest men.

    " This book helped to direct and define my career as scholar, historian, teacher, techie, and modern pagan. Jefferson is one of the four people from history, I would choose to have a long dinner with. "
