Lincoln's Battle with God: A President's Struggle with Faith and What It Meant for America by Stephen Mansfield
Lincoln's Battle with God: A President's Struggle with Faith and What It Meant for America

Jessica Dahl, January 1, 2013

For a man who is revered by almost everyone throughout American history, "Lincoln's Battle with God" shows a side of our president that most people do not know about. Lincoln's struggle with depression, atheism, and the 1800 spin machine is rarely talked about in American history classes. This books uses references, digs through archives, and takes the reader on a journey through Lincoln's dark side to reveal how God can overcome anything.

The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America by Timothy Egan
The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America

Jessica Dahl, January 15, 2010

Who living in the Pacific Northwest could imagine our beautiful states without National/State Forest designations, trails, parks, protected wildlife, and camping fees? The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America is an incredible biography of how and why Teddy Roosevelt set up the forestry service with his close advisor and friend Gifford Pinchot (who the Mt. St. Helen's national Park was named after) and the mismanagement and corruption of the forestry division by William Taft (a President I didn't know anything about before reading this book) after Roosevelt's terms were up that effected towns across the Northwest, families, big and small business, and American politics.

If you want a good look at an era that isn't typically taught in US History classes and an idea of the Pacific Northwest's rich history, I highly recommend this detailed look at one event that shaped future forestry and wildfire practices, big business dealings, and what led to America's most beautiful region (in my opinion), The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America is a book that you won't be able to put down.
