Harry Truman’s Excellent Adventure- Matthew Algeo

Fun little book about Harry and Bess’ drive from from Independence, Missouri to D.C. after his presidency was over. Back in the day a president didn’t get a pension, secret service, or anything. Truman was basically just another guy, albeit another guy that was a president. He wanted to take a cross-country trip as just another guy, but of course it didn’t workout quite that way.  Author made the story interesting,  weaving a bit of history, Truman’s  backstory, his own story, and geography into the narrative.
