What different president has written 40 books, hunted lions, based a 3rd political social gathering, survived an assassin’s bullet, and explored an unknown river longer than the Rhine? filled with extra event, style, drama, humor, and tragedy than an incredible novel, but documented all the way down to the smallest truth, this masterwork recounts the decade of maybe the main extraordinary existence in American history.
