From the Paper:"The book is a biography and discussion about the policies and presidency James K Polk. Polk, the 11th president of the United States, served only one term, and this book looks at how the country was expanding during his term (the California Gold Rush happened near the end of it), and the people were changing as much as the country was growing. This book talks about a very important period in the country's history, and it shows how the country had to change to meet the challenges of this unprecedented growth and change."
