Congressman Skelton's list posted

R180454ZMAR14: I've added Congressman Ike Skelton's reading list! A fair number of old favorites on here - nice to see "Defeat Into Victory" make it onto another list - and quite a few new ones, including a book on Daniel Boone. Wikipedia says that Skelton was a distant relation of Daniel Boone; who knew? Enjoy!
