Riding 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.
