Pre-Order Your Book Now!

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 long-awaited grand re-opening of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum took place on Tuesday of this week!

Now I need your help to get this project over the finish line! By pre-ordering your book today (at the special June promotional base cost of only $50.00) you will help fund my trip to Michigan…to the Ford Library in Ann Arbor and Museum in Grand Rapids. During this trip 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. See "Reward Levels" below for special opportunities only available during June.

“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
