Publishers Description
"A man only learns by two things," Will Rogers said. "One is reading, and the other is association with smarter people." Will Rogers loved people, and adventure, from the time he was a young boy. As a man, he traveled to the four corners of the globe--and never met a man he didn't like. Filled with Will Rogers's own timeless quotes, this picture book tells the story of a great maverick who lived the American dream.
Governor Frank Keating of Oklahoma and award-winning illustrator Mike Wimmer bring to life a role model--and one of Oklahoma's favorite sons--who was quick on his trusty steed but even quicker with his wits.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a great history lesson  Feb 10, 2004
This is a simple and delightful children's picture book that introduces today's children to an American legend. The book tells of childhood in Indian Territory, where he learned "to ride and rope as well as any boy or man" . It also tells of his love of books. This provides younger readers with lots of great information on a hero of long ago that they may have never even heard of. All in all it's a great little history lesson.

This is a lovely story that will excite children's imagination, and the beautiful illustrations will charm young and old alike.

We recommend this book for kids ages 4-8 who have an interest in cowboys.

First Rate! Sincere & Accurate.  Jun 22, 2003
These two Oklahomas haven't just written for merely commerical reasons. If you knew Keating & Wimmer, you would find two men who's lives truly reflect the values, humor and worldview of Rogers in ""American Legend" There may be other more exhaustive works on Rogers, but "American Legend" is great for those who want a reflective and finely illustrated portrayal of this storied personality. Our autographed copy will always occupy a special place in our home.
Keating's Attempt  Feb 5, 2003
Former Governor Frank Keating's book is obviously just an attempt to link his own name with that of Will Rogers. The book was poorly written, inaccurate, insensitive, and unnecessary. Innumberable books about Will are out there already - written with much more skill and knowledge. For adults, I would recommend Ben Yagoda's "Will Rogers: A Biography" (University of Oklahoma Press, 1993), and younger readers would enjoy Liz Sonneborn's "Will Rogers: Cherokee Entertainer" (Chelsea House Publishers, 1993). The irony of a politician trying to capitalize on Will's image even now is pretty funny.
Introduces Children to Good Role Model  Nov 28, 2002
In today's world, entertainers seem to enjoy being negative and antagonistic. Will Rogers, through his humor, taught the value of all humanity and the desire to make the world a better place. And he seemed to enjoy himself as an entertainer and eagerly accepted the role as a spokesman for the common man. Keating's book serves as an excellent introduction for children to Rogers, a role model worthy of emulation. As Rogers once said, "Live your life so that when you loose, you are ahead."
