June 10, 2016 Update (Sun Valley, Idaho) —

The bulk of the writing is complete…the first draft designs of the front and back covers are finished…pre-publication discussions have begun…and the grand re-opening of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum took place on Tuesday of last week. Now I need your help to get this project over the finish line...

By pre-ordering your book today you will help fund my trip to Michigan…to the Ford Library in Ann Arbor and Museum in Grand Rapids. See "Reward Levels" below for special opportunities only available during June.

While in Michigan I will be selecting and purchasing the approximately 100 photos that will be included in the book and doing the final research in the digital and original document files at the Library. I anticipate spending 7 to 10 days between the Library and Museum.

From the Ford Library...

“Bill… It was great to talk to you today. From what you and I talked about during your [oral history] interview so long ago, I believe you have the makings of a very interesting book.”

— Kenneth G. Hafeli, Audiovisual Archivist, Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library

I was at Signal while you were there. I remember hearing about your connection to the Ford family. You, as you know, had a great privilege getting to know such an incredible family. I really look forward to reading your book. I ran into Gerry on the south lawn at an Easter Egg roll, as he went to shake my hand I reached out with my left hand and gave him the Boy Scout salute, telling him it was a privilege to meet a fellow Eagle Scout. He pulled me aside with a big smile on his face and for about 10 minutes we were both just kids again enjoying telling stories about our experiences. I was taken aback by his down to earth approach to me, it was if he was able to step out of the POTUS shoes. Very neat guy.
