Morris, one of the most influential and but lesser known characters of the revolutionary period of the US is well described and many important facts of his influence on the better known 'players' of the war of independence are well described in good context.
This 'bio' covers his rakish life in even detail, including his unfortunate accidents with boiling water and losing his leg in an unfortunate menage.
His contributions in editing, and strongly influencing the written "US Constitution" , and as minister to France, replacing James Munroe, are well detailed.
His active hatred and unfortunate disregard for Thomas Pain's desire for help, while imprisoned for 10 months by Napolean Bonapart, and his somewhat dubious financial dealings could have received more attention. But then, any biography of such a colourful character as Morris' has to be tailored to fit a reasonable size manuscript.
Not a quick read, but a great historical description of the rich and varied political life of one of our lesser know but most influential Founding Fathers.
A great read, well written.
