"The man was Sam Ward. It is almost incredible that of such a character there has never before been written a thorough and complete biography, yet such is the fact. Here is a warm, understanding, scholarly life of one of America's most versatile and fascinating sons. Mr. Thomas has had access to papers hitherto unavailable, and has read enormously in documents of the time. In Sam Ward, King of the Lobby he has produced an important and delightful biography."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
