A legendary Senator advises our new president on the commonsense values necessary to lead our nation.
United States senator Robert C. Byrd is the longest-serving member of the Senate in the history of our great Republic. He has lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, the civil rights movement, the Cold War, the resignation of a U.S. president, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and traumatic military conflicts around the globe, including Iraq and Vietnam. Now, Byrd extends a helping hand to the next president of the United States as only he can. He shares a wealth of knowledge from his remarkable life and unique vantage point in history. In Letter to the New President, Byrd has written a valuable and insightful collection of lessons for our country’s next leader.
