In a selection of Rogers' own words, lassoed together by Day, Will Rogers tells how he became the spokesman and the watchdog for the inarticulate public in a period of dramatic change in American life. A great American, a great democrat, a great internationalist, and not a bad rodeo man, Will's simple directness spoke to "the big, Honest Majority", in whom his faith was steady.
