    Few U.S. presidents have captured the imagination of the American people as has Harry S. Truman, “the man from Missouri.” Ferrell, the author of eight previous books on Truman, provides a definitive biography of the thirty-third president. Ferrell's book is titled, Harry S. Truman: A Life, Hamby's is Man of the People: A Life of Harry S. Truman and McCullough's is Truman.", C-SPAN Algeo, Matthew (). Harry Truman's Excellent Adventure: The True Story of a Great American Road Trip.

    The Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum is the presidential library and resting place of Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States (–), located on U.S. Highway 24 in Independence, was the first presidential library to be created under the provisions of the Presidential Libraries Act, and is one of thirteen presidential libraries Location: West U.S. High . Harry S. Truman was born in Lamar, Missouri on May 8, , the son of John Anderson Truman and Martha Ellen (Young) Truman. The family, which soon included another boy, Vivian, and a girl, Mary Jane moved several times during Truman's childhood and youth - first, in , to a farm near Grandview, then, in , to Independence, and finally, in , to Kansas City.

      The book provides a rare inside view into the presidency during a critical moment in the nation's history. Harry Truman had to address some of the most difficult problems any president has faced: He assumed the presidency during wartime, conducted negotiations with Joseph Stalin, made the decision to drop the atopic bomb, initiated the Marshall 5/5(2).   In April , after the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the presidency fell to a former haberdasher and clubhouse politician from Independence, Missouri. Many believed he would be overmatched by the job, but Harry S. Truman would surprise them all. Few chief executives have had so lasting an impact/5(11).
