In this book, the author provides a history of the 4th Degree, demonstrating along the way the incredible anti-Catholic nativism which was rife in American politics and society during the late 19th through mid 20th centuries.
During this time, the Knights demonstrated their patriotism (which, as Catholics, was constantly being called into question) by publishing, by arranging speaking tours, and by the "KC Huts" which provided hospitality and respite in the battlefields of Europe during the 1st World War. (Everyone welcome, everything free)! Space is also devoted to the 1928 presidential campaign, in which the Catholicism of Al Smith became a major campaign issue.
I did tend to get lost in one or two places, as the history moved into more recent times, getting bogged down with various names, roles, and offices with which I was unfamiliar. I also felt that the book ended rather abruptly.
Overall, though, I highly recommend this book for all 4th Degree Knights -- and for brother Knights considering the 4th Degree.
