KIRKUS REVIEW

Biography of John M. Palmer -- 1817-1900, a political independent who while ahead of his time in anticipation of social legislation, was a figure definitely of his times. His unorthodoxy in politics branded him a turncoat, but he fought for what he thought right, ran for president, was prominent in public affairs. This life is written by a grandson, is well documented with family letters, personal knowledge of the man, and keen interest. A biography for those who like a personal slant on national affairs, with public and family highlight.
