A rich photographic treasure trove---featuring both historical and contemporary images---of the Bush family at work and at play from the author of Ronald Reagan: His Life in Pictures
The Bush family is an American dynasty---a clan of "compassionate conservatives" and "Lone Star Yankees" whose power has helped shape America for decades. From Connecticut Senator Prescott Bush, George H. W. Bush's father, through George and Barbara to George W. Bush and Laura, this first family has lived in front of the camera.
Their biography in pictures creates a rich panorama of twentieth- and early-twentieth-century history and at the same time offers a glimpse of the private sides of these very public figures.
James Spada's beautifully researched book also tells the story of the Bushes in lively captions that accompany the almost three hundred photos, many previously unpublished. From family matriarch Dorothy Walker Bush all the way through to the photogenic new generation, which includes George P. Bush---Florida Governor Jeb Bush's son---and George and Laura's twin girls, Jenna and Barbara, The Bush Family provides a priceless portrait of a clan that believes in a tradition of public service. It is a deep and highly personal overview of nearly seven decades in this remarkable family's private and political life.
