Reading the Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters, by Elizabeth Brown Pryor. Robert E. Lee remains one of the most revered figures in U.S. history. But both in his personal and public life, Lee was more complicated than his iconic image suggests. Historian Pryor uses a compilation of Lee's private correspondence, adding her own commentaries, to present a more balanced but scrupulously fair portrait of the great general. Recipient of the 2007 Jefferson Davis Award.
