But Great Lives in American Literature certainly deserves one. To begin with, I have read dozens of books such as Living Biographies of Famous Novelists by Henry Thomas and Dana Lee Thomas, The Legal 100 by Darien A. McWhirter and Investment Gurus by Peter J. Tanous. When I came across Great Lives in American Literature at a used-book sale, I grabbed it immediately. I almost put it back when I noted on the book jacket that it was suitable for youngsters age 9 to 12. Frankly, I don't think it is a good book for children that young.

This is an excellent resource on the people who have made a significant contribution to American Government. It lists the top 36 men & women who made an impact. The book is separated into 4 different parts:

1) Founding Fathers (John Adams, Ben Franklin, Albert Gallatin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Marshall, James Monroe, & George Washington);

2) Early Days of the Republic (John Q. Adams, John Calhoun, Henry Clay, Sam Houston, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, & Daniel Webster);

3) Civil War-WWI (William Jennings Bryan, Jefferson Davis, Robert LaFollette, Abraham Lincoln, Justin Morrill, Jeannette Rankin, Teddy Roosevelt, & Woodrow Wilson);

4) Modern Times (Dwight Eisenhower, Oliver Wendell Holmes, George Marshall, Thurgood Marshall, Richard Nixon, George Norris, Eleanor Roosevelt, FDR, Margaret Chase Smith, Robert Taft, Harry Truman & Earl Warren).

Various presidents, members of congress, supreme court justices, and military leaders were selected. I found it very interesting to read about people who are not well known or famous, but whose contributions led our country down a certain path.

Pictures are included among all the chapters. The one I found fasinating is a photograph of James Polk where Dolly Madison is included- first time I've ever seen an actual photograph of her.

In the back of the book there is a timeline of world events & U.S. events. There is also a bibliography that gives additional references on each individual for further study.

The flow in the book is wonderful. I highly recommend it. However, the only downside is that it was written in 1988, so more recent contributions are obviously not included. The timeline ends in 1974.
