What most of us don't know about our presidents could fill a book &mdash and this just happens to be that book!
- Rick Beyer has produced dozens of programs for THE HISTORY CHANNEL
- This collection of 100 concise and amusing tales makes the perfect gift.
- Delightfully illustrated, 224-page survey of presidential history.
You know what makes the presidents famous, but it's the stuff you don't know that makes them interesting.
A custody battle made George Washington an American. Counterfeiters tried to steal Lincoln's body. A woman single-handedly brought down Andrew Jackson's cabinet. One man was president for a day. These and many other tales drawn from the archives of THE HISTORY CHANNEL® complete a treasure trove of quirky presidential history that will truly astonish, bewilder, and stupefy.
From Jimmy Carter's UFO sighting to a skinny-dipping Commander in Chief, you will be delighted and amazed by the off-the-wall stories surrounding the highest office in the land. Hundreds of photographs and illustrations bring the surprising moments in the Oval Office wonderfully to life.
Rick Beyer, lifelong student of history and successful producer of many THE HISTORY CHANNEL® programs, has distilled his years of historical research, filtered them with light-hearted wit, and gathered his favorite stories into this highly amusing, surprisingly informative, book. Rick is also the author of The Greatest War Stories Never Told and The Greatest Presidential Stories Never Told.
You'll be lost in these fascinating, witty accounts of presidential history before you can hum Hail to the Chief (and learn how that became the President's song in the bargain).
