    • Mornings on Horseback By David McCullough ISBN-13: 9780671447540
      “Mornings on Horseback” is the brilliant biography of the young Theodore Roosevelt. Hailed as “a masterpiece” (John A. Gable, “Newsday” ), it is the winner of the “Los Angeles Times” 1981 Book Prize for Biography and the National Book Award for Biography. Written by David McCullough, the author of “Truman,” this is the story of a remarkable little boy, seriously handicapped by recurrent and almost fatal asthma attacks, and his struggle to manhood: an amazing metamorphosis seen in the context of the very uncommon household in which he was raised.” Used with Units 1-4. Paperback
    • The Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge By Calvin Coolidge, Editor: Amity Shlaes and Matthew Denhart ISBN-13: 9781610171632
      “Coolidge’s masterful autobiography offers urgent lessons for our age of exploding debt, increasingly centralized power, and fierce partisan division. For all his modesty, Coolidge left an expansive legacy–one we would do well to study today. Shlaes and ­coeditor ­Matthew Denhart draw out the lessons from Coolidge’s life and career in an enlightening introduction and annotations to Coolidge’s text. The editors have also assembled nearly three dozen photographs, several of Coolidge’s greatest speeches, a timeline of Coolidge’s life, and afterwords by former Vermont governor James H. Douglas and two of Coolidge’s great-grandchildren, Jennifer Coolidge Harville and Christopher Coolidge Jeter. This autobiography combats the myths about one of our most misunderstood presidents.” Used with Units 5-6. Paperback
    • Born Again By Charles Colson ISBN-13: 9780800794590
      “In 1974 Charles W. Colson pleaded guilty to Watergate-related offenses and, after a tumultuous investigation, served seven months in prison. In his search for meaning and purpose in the face of the Watergate scandal, Colson penned Born Again. This unforgettable memoir shows a man who, seeking fulfillment in success and power, found it, paradoxically, in national disgrace and prison.
      This expanded edition includes a brand-new introduction and a new epilogue by Colson, recounting the writing of his bestselling book and detailing some of the ways his background and ministry have brought hope and encouragement to so many.” Used with Units 7-11. Paperback
    • God and Ronald Reagan By Paul Kengor ISBN-13: 9780060571429
      “Ronald Reagan is hailed today for a presidency that restored optimism to America, engendered years of economic prosperity, and helped bring about the fall of the Soviet Union. Yet until now little attention has been paid to the role Reagan’s personal spirituality played in his political career, shaping his ideas, bolstering his resolve, and ultimately compelling him to confront the brutal — and, not coincidentally, atheistic — Soviet empire.
      In this groundbreaking book, political historian Paul Kengor draws upon Reagan’s legacy of speeches and correspondence, and the memories of those who knew him well, to reveal a man whose Christian faith remained deep and consistent throughout his more than six decades in public life.” Used with Units 12-15.
