Dutch Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Dutch

Dutch is the story of Ronald Reagan's life from his childhood through his presidency. Morris leaves out very little. He talks about Reagan's college life, his stint as a sports caster, his acting career, his union presidency, and his complete political career in Sacramento and Washington, DC. Reagan's personal life is also covered--both his first marriage to Jane Wyman and his second to Nancy.

Perhaps the most controversial aspect of this book is the author's decision to intrude himself as a fictional character into the life of his subject.
