into the Sunrise is more than a conventional biography about
a good man. It’s also more than a conventional review of Al Quie’s
political victories and defeats over three decades in elected office
as a Republican, including twenty-one years in Congress and four
years as governor of Minnesota. Rich in memories and stories, it
connects virtually every sphere and thread in his remarkable days
and celebrates his lifetime love of God and allegiance to Him. In
a time of polarization, Riding into the Sunrise highlights
how Quie’s idea of politics continues to be radically different
from mean-spirited and bunkered types practiced too often by others.
