Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The twentieth President of the United States, James A. Garfield served just five and a half months of his term before dying in office. For nearly half that time, Garfield was fighting for his life after being shot by an angry, revenge-seeking drifter. Garfield's humble beginnings gave no indication that he would rise to the nation's highest office. The last president to be born in a log cabin, Garfield spent time as a canal boat driver, a teacher, a scholar, a minister, and a college president before entering politics. Jeff C. Young's account of Garfield's political career focuses on the president as a man of unfilled potential, who may have done much more for the country had the assassin not taken his life so soon. A part of the "MyReportLinks.com" series, this book provides a solid foundation for student research. It is supplemented by both a list of print resources for further reading and a list of 30 Internet sites related to Garfield's life and times, accessible online through the myreportlinks.com Web site. 2003, Enslow,
