This is a great fat tome for such an unsensational life Do not expect to read about early arboriculture or conservation Do not expect to understand the greatest contemporary local opponent to William Jennings Bryant from within his own party Rather expect a mostly dull story with a glimpse of the interesting sometimes disturbing but altogether neglected point of view of northern conservative Democrats on the antebellum frontier during the Civil War and in the Cleveland administration The value of this rare perspective of Midwestern Democratic libertarianism from 1850 1890 nearly redeems the book It would have been even better to get deeper insight into Morton's political philosophy While there are many primary sources from letters diaries and newspapers there is no explanation of the concepts that shaped the attitudes in these primary sources What results from this style of biography is a dense chronology of steady actions most of which involve the minutiae of state politics For example there is a thorough investigation of an obscure Nebraska state party delegate election vote recount but there is little information on what the candidates stood for For those who aren't state politics scholars excerpts from this book will suffice Don't waste your time reading the whole thing
