(National Geographic Books; Nov. 5, 2013; ISBN: 978-1-4262-1177-5; hardcover; $40), with a foreword by former first lady Laura Bush and an introduction by historian and author William Seale, offers a vivid account of the people who have lived and worked in this symbolic building and highlights many of the fascinating events that have taken place there.
The book, by Noel Grove with William B. Bushong and Joel D. Treese, opens the doors to America’s most famous home through images, anecdotes and records — some rarely seen — that describe life within its walls. Readers will get to know the presidents and their families and delve into some high moments and low moments in their lives; they will walk the halls and gardens roamed by the first families; they will appreciate the hard work and responsibilities of the house staff; and will marvel at the remarkable architecture of the building. The book also introduces Rebecca the raccoon, Rex the King Charles spaniel and other cherished pets that have lived on the property.
