Summary

''A terrific portrait of a man and his times.'' -Jon Meacham, author ofAmerican LionandFranklin and Winston ''For quite a while we've needed a new biography of James K. Polk-America's great underrated president. Now, at last, Walter R. Borneman has delivered the goods. This book is both well written and diligently researched. Highly recommended!'' -Douglas Brinkley, professor of history at Rice University, author ofThe Great Deluge ''Borneman gives us a book that is full of interest and insight and is a pleasure to read.'' -Robert Middlekauff, Bancroft Prize-winning author ofThe Glorious Cause ''[An] informed and readable biography.'' -The Wall Street Journal ''Borneman is a trailblazer in the mold of his subject [and has produced] a volume that can stand with all but the very best presidential biographies.'' -Louisville Courier-Journal ''With impressive exuberance . . . Borneman rightly describes his subject as America's greatest expansionist president.'' -Austin American Statesman ''Borneman manages to pull [many] threads together into a comprehensible and entertaining narrative. . . . [His] biography gives Polk his due.'' -Rocky Mountain News
