Andrew Jackson had always been a favortite president of mine since reading about him in 6th grade. However, this book gave muich more info than I had ever read previously. I found a lot of locations of Jackson's life that did not earn my admiration. I was disappointed, not in the book, but in my erroneous belief in Jackson's goodness. I still like a lot of things about him, but the book certainly humanized him. He was not a saint, but a sinner like everyone else! I enjoyed learning more about a previous president.
I enjoyed this book very much -- so much about our nation's infancy in politics, a greater understanding of the man himself with all his ideologies and flaws, and his unwavering devotion to his wife, Rachel. I recommend this book to any one interested in grasping our country as it was in the earliest of times when it was still in the thresholds of becoming the world's greatest power and leader!!
Although we can't compare Jacksonian America with our 21st Century America directly, the reader can create some startling resemblances with the reaction of Americans then and now. The 1820s showed widespread lack of trust in the established elitist government not much differently psychologically from 2016 ing between the lines the reader can see the frustration Americans had/have with government. Distrust and feeling disenfranchised, Americans are supporting non establishment candidates like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump who are successfully causing concern among established Republicans as is Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side. Some how, I think the Andrew Jackson in this book would give approval. The Jacksonian era was a major benchmark in our history where the establishment fought and lost. We are seeing much of this today. This small book should be recommended reading for all American. It is a amazing biography of a man who changed America.
When I first saw this book on Book Bub, I realized that my study of President Andrew Jackson was deficient--probably because of his reputation. Ralph Adrist's summary of Jackson's life was sufficient to fill in some info that were unknown to me but was not satisfying as an in-depth biography. The book is clearly written and provides a cogent overview of Jackson but I was hoping for a small more. I will recommend it for persons that wish to know a small more of Jackson's life without getting bogged down in alternative views and opinions. It reads easily and quickly.
I gave this book only 4 stars because I would have appreciated more depth. Jackson changed the American government in very profound ways and yet they were treated quite matter of fact by this author, I must admit to being a historical reader and the level of depth is probably just right for the average reader. Interesting, well written, but too short for an eight year president.
This is a quick, not-to-deep biography. If it reads like a famous history magazine article it might be because it is published by American Heritage magazine. But it is a fast reference and helps put Jackson in perspective. While it doesn't gloss over his flaws, neither does it discover them. If you're just curious, this is a amazing method to scratch that itch. If you wish a serious read, this will leave you unquenched.
This was my first reading of a biography of 'Old Hickory'. I learned a lot about the man--some of which I didn't like, but which seemed to be exactly what Jackson was: a self-made, common man, with an uncontrolled temper and no room for forgiveness of those who dared to oppose or speak out versus him. Nevertheless, he played a part in our country's development, and provided a hard-nosed style of leadership which backed off those European nations who wanted to or who tried to meddle in America's internal affairs. He had his put in U.S. leadership and national expansion westward. Kindest regards to the author and his work.
Not having studied much about Andrew Jackson, I found this book to be very enlightening. Gives a amazing of insight to the man who was ultimately responsible for the establishment of the Democratic Party. Also demonstrates how after 200 years not much in the method of politics has changed.
I knew Bo when I attended Auburn University the same time he did. I was a grad student. He was one of the nicest people I have ever met. I met him when I was a graduate teaching assistant at the Kid Study Center at Auburn. He was one of my lab students. The kids really loved him. Sports Illustrated did their article on him with the children. I am glad to see a book out about him and wonder what he is up to now. If any one knows, please email me at Thanks, Kimberlee
Can't obtain enough romance BJ style, from the Madaris to the Bachelor's it's an awesome ride. Family with powerful ties, amazing work ethics, sense of pride doing positive things while falling in love along the way...it doesn't obtain any better. Marvelous method to spend any day.
This is a unbelievable picture book in which the two writers and one illustrator imagine what it was like for Jackson Pollack to think about and then make one of his paintings -- specifically, "Number One, 1950 (Lavender Mist)." It's fascinating to watch Jackson go into "action" as he twists and turns his body in to better throw paint on the canvas and continue the "line" he seeks. It's also fascinating to read about the influences on Jackson (Indian sand painting, for one). The authors imagine with amazing insight and respect and make a unbelievable book. I particularly like turning one of the final pages and encountering the painting that Jackson works on throughout the book: very dramatic.
When modern art is brought to the table, the question for the untrained is quite often: Is this art? What makes art? Can I do this? For such questions, answers always vary. It is art if you think it is art even if it may not be amazing art. The final consensus is that it is art if it challenges and sustains. Such art is universally held to be art.Early on, modern art broke tradition, broke stereotypes, and set the art globe on its heels. Until this time artists tried to capture a realistic experience--people, objects, landscapes--and place them on canvas. The moderns were the first to ignore the boundaries of the canvas. In fact, iconoclasts that they were, they acknowledged the confines of the canvas and its two-dimensional globe and started experimenting with fresh techniques. The Impressionistic painters were the first, then the Post-Impressionistic painters went jumps ahead. Instead of painting broad realistic pictures, they began defying shapes, colors, time.Jackson Pollock represents one segment of this fresh modern art, that which is called "action painting," or "spatter painting." This book, "Action Jackson," info Jackson's technique of creating art and making the viewer feel and appreciate his vision and told simply enough for a kid to did Jackson work? He lay out a large canvas on the floor of his studio, studied it, then spattered house paint across it--directly from the can, from a stick, a brush. He worked over a series of days to obtain everything just right.His vision was to lay out colors and patterns and the intermixing of colors and patterns to make a canvas that spoke of something more cosmic than a bowl of apples. For Jackson the process of painting said as much as the final product. This book beautifully conveys the idea of his vision and his process and his final product. I never dreamed a writer and an illustrator could capture the essence of Pollock's work in one thin children's book, but this most definitely rhaps the success of this book in capturing Jackson's style and work earned it an Honor Award in the Robert F. Siebert contest, and a Fresh York Times Best Book of the Year, and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. "Action Jackson" was published in 2002. Jackson Pollock died in a vehicle crash in 1956.
This application is missing sections of the paper...lifestyle and opinion to name a couple. This is disappointing and I was hoping with the latest modernize that was going to be on of the fixes. I am a long time subscriber, have been paying for "full" digital access, but that access is quite limited. There is difficulty logging into the application from the phone when following the link from the emailed notification of the paper also. Annoying. I've been patient and I am trying to remain patient, but every month when I for "full" digital access, I cringe and take a step closer to canceling.
This book is an unusual children's book and about a hero whose artwork will appeal to children. Although his life is not an uplifting story, the book picks up on the necessary parts and gives a feeling for what "Action Jackson" was all about. His freedom to make what he wanted and place his feeling on canvas is an necessary notice to kids who need to know that there are a lot of method to be creative. That is it is OK to place their feeling into their art without worrying about whether it is "right" or "good". It is a quiet book about an artist who was quiet but whose life was certainly active as was his art.
I'm a large fan of Ms. Jackson's books! I started with the very first Madaris book and continued on from there. Loved the Bachelors in Demand series, Westmoreland's and can't wait for the Outlaws and continuation of the Granger series. I love this app, I've downloaded it to my smartphone and phone!
I love this app, I must say I am still trying to obtain use to everything that can be done on it. Anywho, I have met some of the nicest people on here that is very helpful to me weather it is letting me know about the lastest Ms Jackson's book or to present me how to obtain my direct messages or what their reading now etc... I would recommend this application and have done so.. 5 stars all the way!! Amazing job Ms Jackson this application is awesome!!!!
Amazing book, easy enough for children but with enough detail to be used in a classroom. Attractive illustrations to go with the story of how Jackson created his paintings. I read this to my students before we did our own drip paintings and they all listened intently during the story.
Starts with the best of the Jackson Five and like a time machine it goes forward through Michael's amazing musical career! I have a 6 speaker custom sound system in my Outback and it sound great. Amazing remastering with proper bass levels and clearly distinguishable vocals! I have not played it on my home system yet.
Ah, "Snakes on a Plane:" an entire film created, a car if you will, for a single line, just because everyone agreed it would be amazing for a hero played by Samuel L. Jackson to state that "[he has] had it with these m—f'n snakes on this m—f'n plane!" And it was awesome. Not sure about the rest of the film but this application distills it down to its essence in convenient soundboard form. Along with several other classic film lines. No intrusive ads either that I've seen. A quintessential soundboard app.
