This was a fun read and I learned things I had no knowledge of. What really blew me away is people who were related by blood and got married. To me that is beyond my comprehension. The only one I knew before this book was Jerry Lee Lewis who married his thirteen year old cousin. Now I have learned that Franklin D. Roosevelt married his cousin Eleanor. She did not even have to change her last name. Rudy Giuliani and Regina Peruggi got married and thought they were third cousins so that was not bad. But after 14 years they discovered they were second cousins and had their marriage annulled soon after that. I have always heard about Jim Thorpe the Olympic winner, but what I did not know is he was stripped of his medals over something that today would not happen. To learn more you have to read this book. Oh my stars, talk about a shocker. You have to read the story on page 14. For me I will never eat this again. I don’t care if it was in 1904, we are also told of other stories even in our time.
