This is a great biography by Ben Yagoda. Follow Will Rogers from obscurity, growing up in Oklahoma, to become one of the most loved and admired men in America.
How could one man be gifted with so much talent and energy? Follow Will as he travels across America and the world. He worked and starred with all the performing legends of his day. He was friends with famous aviators, influential politicians, and the most wealthy people in the world. He met with Presidents. Yet through it all, he never forgot his humble Oklahoma roots and people loved him for it.
Will Rogers is a man worth remembering, and quoting. His wit, humor and insight into life will amaze and astonish you. The story of his life will inspire you and you’ll weep as you read of his untimely death in 1935.
There will never be another Will Rogers, but his legacy lives on through his quotes and the work of the Will Rogers Memorial Museum in Claremore, OK. How many of us would like to say with Will Rogers: “I never met a man I didn’t like?”
