Synopsis

From Native American legends to resort era beginnings, from direct involvement by elite families of West Georgia to Franklin Delano Roosevelt's forty-one visits to his adopted state, and from the amazing polio generation and one of mankind's most significant accomplishments to near closure, rebirth, and a myriad of what-might-have-beens. This is the complete story of Warm Springs, from pioneer beginnings and regional development to state and federal political intrigue, romantic suspicions and questionable ethics, social causes and lasting initiatives, civil and disability rights, medical origins, and heartwarming success stories. While the story of one of mankind's greatest achievements, it's still a legacy that has never been capitalised on to its fullest extent. Not just another Roosevelt book, this story is one the historians mostly missed and in its telling, the great man is made even greater. FDR's influence remains so universal that it is easy to understand how this happened.
