KIRKUS REVIEW

The of Will Rogers, who is also curator of the Memorial in Claremore, Okia., has collected from syndicated columns, advertising, letters, and speeches, some hundred or more quotations, sayings, and thoughts of the ""cowboy philosopher"" on a variety of subjects. Here is what he wrote on America and its people, on politicians and politics (""...Is the best show in America""). Democrats and Republicans- elections, business, law and lawyers, bankers and taxes, presidents -- in general and individually, education, travel, philosophy and religion. There are also remarks on manners, dress, civilization, missionaries, the Bible and death and the whole brings into view the way in which he pked fun at human foibles and happenings, issues and ideas, and social shams, and the pointed sharpness in his illiterate style. For an audience that does not want to forget the man and his opinions.
