Remembering Seven Prophets (8 Book Series)
From Book 1: President Joseph Fielding Smith (1876 to 1972) , the tenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints represents a sort of welding link connecting all Church Presidents, past and present. The grandnephew of the founding Prophet, Joseph Smith, Jr., Joseph Fielding Smith was a contemporary of the succeeding fifteen Presidents of the Church. As a boy and a young man, he was personally acquainted with Presidents John Taylor, Wilford Woodruff, and Lorenzo Snow. He served in the Quorum of the Twelve during the administrations of his father, President Joseph F. Smith, and then under Presidents Heber J. Grant, George Albert Smith, and David O. McKay. By the time he was ordained as the tenth President of the Church on January 23, 1970, he had personally witnessed nearly a century of Church history. He was also a contemporary of the six Church Presidents who succeeded him after his death (as of November of 2014), having served in the First Presidency or the Quorum of the Twelve with Presidents Harold B. Lee, Spencer W. Kimball, Ezra Taft Benson, Howard W. Hunter, Gordon B. Hinckley, and Thomas S. Monson.
This book is the first part of a seven volume work entitled Remembering Seven Prophets, which are based upon the reminiscences President Smith's scribe and secretary, Francis M. Gibbons. Now in his ninety-fourth year, Brother Gibbons worked personally with seven Presidents of the Church and is the most prolific biographer of LDS Church Presidents in the history of the Church.
Included in this book are many unique stories, anecdotes and insights about President Joseph F. Smith which are available nowhere else.

Roosevelt (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:
“A brilliant full-length portrait of Franklin Roosevelt the politician”—the first in an award-winning two-volume biography (The Christian Science Monitor).

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the longest serving president in United States history, reshaping the country during the crises of the Great Depression and World War II. But before his ascension to the presidency, FDR laid the groundwork for his unprecedented run with decades of canny political maneuvering and steady consolidation of power.
In this remarkable New York Times–bestselling biography, Pulitzer Prize–winning historian James MacGregor Burns traces FDR’s rise and the peculiar blend of strength and cunning that made him such a uniquely transformative figure. Weaving together lively narrative and impressive scholarship, Burns reconstructs his youth and education at Groton and Harvard, his relationships with his cousins Theodore and Eleanor, his immersion in New York State politics, and his rise to national prominence, all the way through his first two terms as president, which saw the historic New Deal take hold and the drumbeats of World War II begin.
Originally published in 1956, The Lion and the Fox was among the first studies of Roosevelt—and it remains a landmark record of his ambitions, talents, and flaws. Hailed by the New York Times as “a sensitive, shrewd, and challenging book” and by Newsweek as “a case study unmatched in American political writings,” Burns’s stunning achievement is the life story of a fascinating political figure.

George Washington

* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *

Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.

George Washington, the first president of the United States, is much more than a monument on Mount Rushmore. Who was Washington, the general, president, and husband? He was first and foremost a man of impeccable honor which, despite military adversity and political wrangling, never abandoned him. The Founding Fathers who squabbled and competed amongst themselves did agree on one thing: only Washington could lead the country, first in the country’s military fight for freedom and then as the man charged with transforming thirteen individual states into a united country. But in his youth, George Washington did not intend to become the Father of his Country. As a younger son of a middling class Virginian, he intended to earn his living as a surveyor, and in that role, he was introduced to the vast potential of the country that would one day be a nation. But when the death of his older brother made him the heir to Mount Vernon, Washington ascended to leadership in the military, political and social spheres of Virginia and the United States.

Inside you will read about...

✓ The Washington's of Virginia
✓ Europe Exports its Wars to the Colonies
✓ Washington at Mount Vernon
✓ An Englishman no Longer
✓ Washington at War
✓ The Father of His Country
✓ Return to Mount Vernon

As a member and later officer in the Virginia militia, he fought with the British army against the French as the two European powers struggled for control of the rich Ohio Valley. The British, who would refuse Washington a commission in their army, would later meet him in battle as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, fighting for independence against the forces of King George III. As a political leader, he would become the architect of the American government. As the master of Mount Vernon, Washington’s marriage to the wealthy Martha Dandridge Custis placed him among the elite of the Virginia aristocracy. His integrity established a model for subsequent generations to emulate. That few have managed to match his achievements is an indication of his influence and character. Meet George Washington, the man, and discover the identity of this remarkable leader.
