The material from this book and the material we learned in class in exactly the same. Mr. Estep and Patricia Brady do an excellent job of presenting the material. The only difference between the two is that they choose to add different details to different material. The documentation that the author provides throughout the story is tremendous yet still making the story interesting. All of the documentation material comes from The Papers of Andrew Jackson. The most significant information I learned by reading this book was the in detail life of Rachel: how she was treated and how others viewed her. This book made me appreciate Rachel Jackson much more than I did before reading this material. I learned all about Rachel Jackson’s previous marriage and all of the true struggles she went through to end up when her life ended. All of the information was greatly appreciated and I learned a tremendous amount. Patricia Brady did a wonderful job of writing out this material. She used excellent use of verbs and a very good choice of adjectives and adverbs. Brady also made the information interesting and easy to understand. This book was extremely interesting and informative. The book provided valuable information in a very interesting way. I enjoyed every part of this book and I would definitely recommend it to
