A Book to Read and Love: Captain and the Kings - Taylor Caldwell

A short summary of Captain and the Kings:

An Irish immigrant's ruthless rise to riches and the costs he paid to capitalism.

Favorite quote from the book:

"If the history of every man in this world were known, back to our forefathers, none of us would have any reason for any pride at all."

Questions to ponder while reading Captain and the Kings:

Have you ever been hungry?

What motivates you?

My thoughts about the book:

A good story about American power and politics of the late 1800s.

A thought-provoking book about the costs of capitalism and civil service.

A book that makes me wonder who truly holds the reigns in America now.
