The author’s easy prose takes his readers along the journey of Will Rogers’ life.

Not just a humorist, movie star or newspaper columnist, Rogers was an intricate part of many major national problems and political issues of the day. By direct involvement, such as the Great Depression, or political opinion, as with the corruption of the Tea Pot Dome scandal, Rogers must have been the Forrest Gump of his day.
