Among the best history books on Idaho/National politics I've read. A wonderful mix of history that includes a great measure of deep thoughts of a spiritual nature. Grant J. Hansen takes you on his journey, educationally and experientially, to being a Mormon Democrat. For those who are LDS Dems in red states, this is a must read for it's positive, invigorating candor.
