Thomas Jefferson - Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Everything

Maira Kalman

Thomas Jefferson is perhaps best known for writing the Declaration of Independence - but there's so much more to discover. This energetic man was interested in everything. He played violin, spoke seven languages and was a scientist, naturalist, botanist, mathematician and architect. He designed his magnificent home, Monticello, which is full of objects he collected from around the world. Our first foodie, he grew over fifteen kinds of peas and advocated a mostly vegetarian diet. And oh yes, as our third president, he doubled the size of the United States and sent Lewis and Clark to explore it.
