by Bryan B. Sterling (Author). I received the book "The Best of Will Roers" in excllent condition. It gives the life of Will Rogers and the impact he had on our country; it is told in short biographical sketches and through his humorous sayings.

Bryan and Francis Sterling through their meticulous research over many years,became well known with the Rogers clan.This book,one of several they authored together,brings into focus Will's film making period,which other authors usually skim over, instead leaning more towards his columns,radio speeches and travels.ANY film he ever appeared in is listed here,and that includes his travelogues made in the late 20s traveling through Europe.Every "I" is dotted and "T" crossed, and the authors also give us other events occurring concurrently with his films,along with Rogers own commentary on some of his works.The book is a fascinating read and adds another piece to the Rogers puzzle.The authors did their homework and it shows.Excellent and a must have addition to one's Roger's library.
