Ever met anyone who came from a humble beginning only to grow into a power-hungry leader? This book helps to show us the culture, family and land that shapes the beginning of a new people yet how the wrong leader can change everything from the direction a country goes in all the way to who wakes up the next morning. Mysterious and unexpected things happen as we follow a president through his rite of passage.
