Summary
Ulysses S. Grant's autobiography is arguably the most notable literary achievement of any American president: a lucid, compelling, and brutally honest chronicle of triumph and failure. From his frontier boyhood, to his heroics in battle, to the grinding poverty from which the Civil War ironically "rescued" him, these memoirs are a mesmerizing, deeply moving account of a brilliant man told with great courage as he reflects on the fortunes that shaped his life and his character. Written under excruciating circumstances-- Grant was dying of throat cancer-- and encouraged and edited from its very inception by Mark Twain, it is a triumph of the art of autobiography
