Recommends it for: FDR fans, Georgia history nuts, and anyone interested in truly significant, but unsung places
Absolutely fascinating look at Warm Sorings, Georgia. The photographs are excellent. The author obviously loves the location, because that adoration came out from the descriptions and text. I never realized so much important history took place in such a small down in Georgia. FDR's unfluence was great, but Warm Springs must have made quite an impact on the President as well. History buffs should love this book.

This is the kind of book that makes me want to visit a place to see it for myself. I was aware of Warm Springs but had no real sense of its history. Burke brings the setting to life and reveals why this is such an important place. FDR was an important president and I appreciate understanding the man behind the policies. Another plus is the superb photo collection.
