About Reagan’s Roots:
Ronald Reagan is thought of as a Californian, a Westerner, but the values that guided him all his life are straight out of the land where he was born and spent the first 21 years of his life: northwestern Illinois. He was the product of four generations of rural settlers.
The characteristics associated with him--self-reliance, self-confidence, modesty, optimism, loyalty, tolerance, determination, good humor and reverence for God--all came from his teachers, clergy, role models, the circumstances of his youth and especially his parents.
Through the details of his childhood, youth and young adulthood, Reagan’s Roots traces the development of all of these elements of his character so that the reader will come away with a better understanding of what made this man a successful president.
