Description
The first Republican elected to be the Governor of Virginia in over 100 years, Holton broke the back of the subterranean but rampant resistance to school desegregation by the previous Byrd administration. His memoir is remarkably humble, particularly given his accomplishments, and he makes sure everybody who was there gets mentioned, including the very strange Richard Nixon and the many members of the Virginia GOP who surprised themselves in their success in education and reform. Holton explains very well what it is like to become a grown-up, a decent human being with a mission, and then a powerhouse driven by a flame of conscience.
