Will Rogers,: A biography Hardcover – January 1, 1962

by Donald Day (Author)


"Will Rogers" by Donald Day is a satisfying biography of this truly unique American. Friend to presidents and world leaders, Will Rogers spoke to the average citizen, while his amusing political commentary often struck at the very essence of national and world problems. Day draws much of his material from Rogers' autobiography and comedy routines, which give the reader the essence of the man himself. One is struck with the spontaneous improvisation ability of Rogers both as an entertainer and serious speaker. From vaudeville rope tricks, Ziegfield chorus lines, radio broadcasts, lecture circuits, world tours, silent movies, talkies, newspaper columns, and a leading promoter of the airline industry, Rogers' career spanned a truly remarkable era, 1900-1935. We will never see his like again.
