    James A. Garfield may have been the most extraordinary man ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. But the shot didn’t kill Garfield. The drama of what hap­pened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in tur­moil.

    Melinda says: "Marvelous, Magnificent, Millard"

    Story

    This is a incredible piece of American history in which Ms.Millard delivers with brilliancy.
    I never thought she would be able to top her "RIver of Doubt"( Teddy Roosevelt's journey down the Amazon River) but, she does here. This is an entertaining,sad,but all the time,interesting story of a forgotten President. Highly recommended if you love American history.
    Other than the shooting at the hands of Charles Guiteau and brutal treatment by his own doctors, the only thing sadder is how we as a nation, were robbed of James Garfield and how he could have offered so much to our nation. Thanks to Ms. Millard, our 20th president has now become a new hero of mine.
    THIS IS A GREAT BOOK! I ENJOYED IT IMMENSELY!
