Staff Reviews


I loved The River of Doubt, about Theodore Roosevelt’s journey down the Amazon, and Candice Millard’s first book, so I couldn’t wait for Destiny of the Republic, and I was not disappointed. James A. Garfield was only President for a few short months before he was shot, and Millard makes us feel that loss poignantly. She vividly illustrates the best and the worst of politics, society, technology and medicine of 130 years ago, couched in a riveting narrative that races to its destined conclusion.
