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.
