This biography critically examines one of America's most polarizing presidents. Jackson's backwoodsy lifestyle and fierce determination positioned him as a political outsider and voice of the people. The narrative highlights Jackson's public service, military leadership, and two-term presidency. His successes and failures, as well as his controversial treatment of Native Americans, are objectively portrayed. Drawings and inserts enhance the text. Timeline. Bib., ind.
