This book shares with us those times and shows us how lucky this country was to have had this strong and honest man at the top when we needed those qualities the most.
I truly hope that DHK is awarded another Pulitzer for this work.

But that was true. It is clear that Ford and Kennerly did have a very close relationship, and Kennerly was there with his cameras every step of the way, making history through recording history. It is obvious when considering the wide range of photos here that nobody had more access to Ford than Kennerly.
The layout for this book is like a Life magazine - Kennerly lets the large photos speak for themselves, and only adds relevant background commentary where he feels it is needed.
I would recommend this book to a wide range of people - historians, Presidential buffs, photographers, or even as a gift for someone who was around during Watergate. I gave one to my dad for Christmas, and he was raving about the book to the whole family. He especially liked the candid photo of Nixon (before he resigned).
There is no other book like this on the market, and there never will be any others of this quality, because only Kennerly had the opportunity and has the talent to take pictures like these, and could produce such a high-quality work of art. Thank you for sharing these photos with us, Mr. Kennerly.
