“By centering imaginatively around the ranch and its environs in that unique American region of the Hill Country of Texas, Rothman offers a useful approach to understanding the always fascinating Lyndon Johnson.”—Journal of American History

“Rothman does a good job of proving the importance of ‘the home place’ in the America of the 1960s. . . . Johnson wanted a place where he could be biggest and always right, and the ranch was–and during his five-year presidency became even more so–that place.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News

“Mr. Rothman does a nice job of explaining the politics of place, as well as describing the appeal of life on the LBJ Ranch.”—The Dallas Morning News
