Remarks on native American life and concurrent events in the states development put each governors tenure in historical perspective.

Especially poignant is Andrew Johnsons rise from civic-minded tailor to governor and ultimately to president, and how a political misunderstanding led to his near-impeachment. Phillips emphasizes the states ability to adapt from an agrarian to urban culture, then back to a retreat-to-the-land phase. Includes governors photos and outstanding bibliography.
