Will Rogers, Cherokee Entertainer by Liz Sonneborn, W David. Baird

In his most famous utterance, the humorist Will Rogers proclaimed 'I never met a man I didn't like, ' but it often seemed equally true that there was not a man or woman who did not like Will Rogers.This embodiment of quintessential American values was born to part-Cherokee parents in 1879 in the Indian Territory of what is now the state of Oklahoma. As a footloose youth, he was much more interested in riding and roping than schoolwork, and his skill as one of the greatest lariat artists of all time took him around the world and to the Broadway stage; but it was only when he added topical humor to his act that Rogers became, in the first four decades of the 20th century, the most popular American entertainer of his day.
