We learned so much about the eight Vice Presidents who became President upon the death of the President. The author explained so many scenarios surrounding the circumstances of each. The chapter “Near Misses” was enlightening also.

This was listed as a developing the NW theme. Just assumed it was the Oregon Trail only to discover OH was the NW before OR was!!! We knew nothing about the settling of the OH River Valley! We learned lots listening to this on a road trip and we‘ve driven through Ohio countless times to get to “somewhere else” apparently discounting the evolution of settlement there. We were particularly interested in the educ. foundation in Ohio.

I knew something about the pack librarian program and nothing about the “blue people” and the Fulgate family. I learned more about all these subjects which took place in the 1930s in Kentucky.

I discovered that I knew very little about Martha Jefferson Randolph and her very difficult life at the hands of her husband. Having had no expectations for this book I now find that I have to recommend it!
