"[T]he heart of the memoir stems from a son visiting his father's 'former haunts' in a very familiar quest."
From the Publisher
Brimming with affectionately unusual anecdotes about what growing up with Ronald Reagan as a parent actually felt like, the author notes that he could not help wondering whether his father ever thought about his children when they weren't standing directly in front of him. Along with other intriguing stories from the White House years, Ron Reagan offers a chillingly detailed first-hand account of how his father almost died after being shot. He also backtracks across America to research Reagan's intense early life.
The son of Ronald and Nancy Reagan presents an intimate assessment of his father's life that features his childhood observations of the qualities that rendered the future 40th President a powerful leader, in an account that also traces the author's effort to learn more about his father's past. Simultaneous.
