The Five of Hearts, who first gathered in Washington in the Gilded Age, included Henry Adams, historian and scion of America's first political dynasty; his wife, Clover, gifted photographer and tragic victim of depression; John Hay, ambassador and secretary of state; his wife, Clara, a Midwestern heiress; and Clarence King, pioneering geologist, entrepreneur, and man of mystery. They knew every president from Abraham Lincoln to Theodore Roosevelt and befriended Henry James, Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, and a host of other illustrious figures on both sides of the Atlantic.
From the Publisher:
Documents the contributions and legacy of the political historian, his photographer wife, former Secretary of State John Hay and his heiress wife, and scientist-turned-entrepreneur Clarence King, evaluating their roles in the opening of the American West, early twentieth-century feminism, and the emergence of the United States as a world power. By the author of When Trumpets Call.
