A great man is known not only by the wealth of his achievements but also by the number of lives he touched with those achievements. South Dakota Crusader: Francis Case’s Road to Congress by Stephen L. Wilson is a biography that describes in detail the life and works of Francis Case, one of the most notable Congressmen in South Dakota. The book looks into his personal life and public life and the impact of his life on his community. 

Francis Case was born to Herbert Llywellyn Case and Mary Ellen Grannis on December 9, 1896. His father was a minister, and he grew up close to his paternal and maternal grandparents. He began school and discovered his great talent for public speaking and debate. He led so many debate clubs, participated in many debate contests, and gave so many speeches. He finished school and joined the newspaper industry, where he became a great force. He also delved into politics, where he became one of the greatest congressmen in South Dakota. His life and achievements were very numerous and astounding. 

I loved the descriptive nature of the book. His life and works were described in great detail, making it easy for readers to follow through. I also enjoyed the little notes that were written at different points in the book from his personal diary, journals, and collections. The book also included historical events with references, which largely increased my knowledge base on the political landscape of South Dakota and the United States as a whole.

I did not dislike anything about the book. I loved the beautiful narrative writing style, which made it easy to read the book. I also loved the references at the bank, which can be referred to for further information. The photos and maps at the end of the book gave a vivid description of the events contained in the book, making it even more interesting to read.

Although it was a very long read, it was an interesting and informative read. I rate this book five out of five stars for its amazing and exceptional writing style. The book was expertly edited, and I found no grammatical or spelling errors while reading it. I recommend this book to individuals interested in learning about the life and works of the South Dakota Congressman, Francis Case, and his contributions to the development of South Dakota. I also highly recommend it for individuals interested in learning more about the political landscape of South Dakota and the United States as a whole. This is an excellent and exceptional read.
