Summary

In this volume, current U.S. senator William Frist traces the life stories of seventeen Tennesseans who have served on Capitol Hill during the twentieth century. From the individual portraits of such prominent national figures as Howard Baker and Albert Gore, Jr., there emerges a larger picture of a state that has played a crucial role in shaping the modern political landscape of the U.S. and the world.
