This first full-length biography documents the strong family ties and loyalties that shaped Daniels's character and demonstrates the extent to which his religion bred not only the merry puritanism but also the moral courage that figured in his career and in his personal life. There is ample evidence to show that in spite of dire forecasts of disaster, he succeeded where his critics insisted that he must fail. His was a triumph of temperament over inexperience, of character over qualifications.
