First families : an intimate portrait from the Kennedys to the Clintons
Bulfinch Press Book,
For more than thirty years, Time Inc. photographer Harry Benson has been going to the White House -- and returning with indelible images of our Presidents and their families. Now, for the first time, Benson has collected the best of these photographs in a book. Here are John and Jackie Kennedy captured as they share a private joke; Richard Nixon at his resignation, flanked by a tearful Pat; a somber Jimmy Carter standing alone in the Oval Office; Ronald and Nancy Reagan in a close-up smooch; Bill and Hillary Clinton caught embracing in a hammock; and many other equally telling images. Accompanied throughout by Benson's lively notes and anecdotes, these intimate photographs offer a unique sneak peek inside the White House for anyone who's intrigued by the private lives of our most public figures.
Nancy Reagan and Rosalynn Carter have each contributed short commentaries on what it was like to live in the White House.
