The explosive story of the Republican Party's intensely dramatic and fractious efforts to find its way back to unity and national dominance.
After the 2012 election, the GOP was in the wilderness. Lost and in disarray. And doggedly determined to do whatever it took to get back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
McKay Coppins has had unparalleled access to Republican presidential candidates, power brokers, lawmakers, and Tea Party leaders. Based on more than 300 interviews, The Wilderness is the book that opens up the party like never before: the deep passions, larger-than-life personalities, and dagger-sharp power plays behind the scenes.
In wildly colorful scenes, this exclusive look into the Republican Party at a pivotal moment in its history follows a cast of its rising stars, establishment figures, and loudmouthed insurgents - Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, Scott Walker, and dozens of others - as they battle over the future of the party and its path to the presidency.

Just the facts! Great stories.
Neutral. Human. Fact based.
I got to know each of the Republican candidates and was most surprised by the story of Jeb Bush & Paul Ryan. Jeb, because he IS so different from his family of origin - very appealing. Paul Ryan, because he actually walks the walk, doesn't just bluster his way around on a bunch of hot air. I hope he will lead the GOP over to his way of thinking - I might even become a Republican!!
When Paul Ryan worked in the "trenches" with addicts in recovery.
who they are & where they come from
Interesting and Alarming
