Summary

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award ''Proof that we live in a great age of biography . . . [a book] of radiant excellence . . . Caro's evocation of the Texas Hill Country, his elaboration of Johnson's unsleeping ambition, his understanding of how politics actually works are---let it be said flat out---at the summit of American historical writing.'' --Washington Post ''A monumental political saga . . . powerful and stirring. It's an overwhelming experience to readThe Path to Power.''--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt,New York Times ''Not only a historical but a literary event. An epic biography . . . A sweeping, richly detailed portrait . . . vivid [with] Caro's astonishing concern for the humanity of his characters. An awesome achievement.'' --Peter S. Prescott,Newsweek ''Stands at the pinnacle of the biographical art.'' --Donald R. Morris,Houston Post ''The major biography of recent years. Brilliant . . . Magisterial . . . Caro has given us an American life of compelling fascination. A benchmark beside which other biographies will be measured for some time to come.'' --Alden Whitman,Los Angeles Herald Examiner ''An ineradicable likeness of an American giant. Caro has brought to life a young man so believable and unforgettable that we can hear his heartbeat and touch him.'' --Henry F. Graff, Professor of History, Columbia University '' Epic. A brief review cannot convey the depth, range and detail of this fascinating story. Caro is a meticulous historian. A monument of interpretive biography.'' --Michael R. Beschloss,Chicago Sun-Times Book Week ''Splendid and moving. At this rate Caro's work will eventually acquire Gibbon-like dimensions, and Gibbon-like passion. . . . Caro is a phenomenon . . . an artful writer, with a remarkable power to evoke and characterize politicians, landscapes, relationships. This massive book is almost continually exciting.'' --Richard Eder,Los Angeles Times ''By every measure---depth of research, brilliance of conception, the seamless flow
