Interview with James K. Polk, An

In her second book for The Overmountain Press, Ruth Smalley uses her unique writing style to illustrate the life and accomplishments of James K. Polk, the eleventh president of the United States. Raised in Tennessee, Polk became a lawyer by trade and a politician by the will of the people. Success in state politics led to a job as one of Tennessee’s representatives in Congress, where he continued to lobby for the interests of the “common man.”

In 1844 he was unanimously nominated, and subsequently elected, to be the chief executive of the nation. Though he served only one term as president, in that time he brought Texas, most of the Southwest, California, and the Oregon Territory into the nation, to make our country what it is today—the United States of America, from sea to shining sea.
