I recently came across an article in Smithsonian about the Author Robert Caro who continues to write his story about President Lyndon Johnson. He thought it would take 2 volumes. His latest volume, number 4, covers Johnson's first 7 weeks LBJ's presidency and is at 600 pages!! So far the story is up to 3200 pages and it ain't close to being over.

Ben, volume 1 might be a good place to start.
