All the great prizes : the life of John Hay, from Lincoln to Roosevelt by John Taliaferro( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Hay was both witness and author of many of the most significant chapters in American history--from the birth of the Republican Party, the Civil War, and the Spanish-American War, to the prelude to the First World War. Much of what we know about Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt comes to us through the observations Hay made while private secretary to one and secretary of state to the other. Hay's friends included virtually every president, sovereign, author, artist, power broker, and robber baron of the Gilded Age. As an ambassador and statesman, he guided many of the country's major diplomatic initiatives at the turn of the twentieth century: the Open Door with China, the creation of the Panama Canal, the establishment of America as a world leader. But for all his poise and polish, he had his secrets. His marriage to one of the wealthiest women in the country did not prevent him from pursuing the Madame X of Washington society, whose other secret suitor was Hay's best friend, Henry Adams. Here is the epic tale of one of the most amazing figures in American history.--From publisher description

In a far country : the true story of a mission, a marriage, a murder, and the remarkable reindeer rescue in 1898. by John Taliaferro( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fall of 1897, eight whaling ships became trapped in the ice on Alaska's northern coast. Without relief, two hundred whalers would surely starve to death by winter's end. Mercifully, an extraordinary missionary, Tom Lopp, and seven Eskimo herders embarked on a harrowing journey to save the ice-imprisoned whalers, driving four hundred reindeer more than seven hundred untracked miles. The trek was unprecedented and epically heroic."
