Will Rogers & Wiley Post : death at Barrow by Bryan B Sterling( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
Incredibly, mystery still surrounds the exact circumstances of their deaths. The government's investigation into their deaths was a travesty. Here, now for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Sterling describe the crash in detail and record all the factors that may have contributed to it. Furthermore, they reconstruct the government's investigation, identifying an amateurish and misguided cover-up. While other famous folks of Rogers' era, such as politicians, ball players, movie stars, and even presidents are but dimly remembered, Rogers' legacy of American humor lives on. There are plays, musicals - such as the long-running "The Will Rogers Follies," now on Broadway - books, and tapes inspired by Rogers' work. His wit and wisdom imbue the work of modern day humorists and comedians from Russell Baker to Jay Leno. Will Rogers continues to capture the hearts and imagination of the American people
