Cindy These Is My Words is fiction, not biography.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Indeed it is.

Do you want me to remove it, Onni?


message 2: by Onni (new)

Onni Stone Yes please do.

Kevin some great books here. I've read Team of Rivals, but also believe Teddy Roosevelt - Wilderness Warrior deserves a nod too...

Here are some more biographies of US Presidents: http://ushistorysite.com/presidents_bios.php
