Benson went back to his diaries from that time period to refresh his own memories. Instead of mere captions, the text in this book includes quotes from Bobby's speeches, direct selections from Benson's diaries & Benson's thoughts birthed by them.
This book begins with photos taken in 1966, showing an exuberant life-challenging Bobby Kennedy shooting the Snake River rapids with some of his family & friends. Among them were his own children, the Shriver children, John Glenn & mountaineer Jim Whittaker. The lively spirit of this gathering was reflected in these photos. These photos always remind me of how full of life Bobby was & how he surrounded himself with like-minded family & friends. One could not help but grab onto life when anywhere within Bobby's aura.
The remaining photos in this book are split between those taken on the campaign trail after Bobby announced his intention to run for President & those taken after his assassination. The campaign photos illustrate the hope & excitement engendered by Bobby everywhere he went. Benson has chosen the perfect words, either his or Bobby's, to accompany these photos. Benson was objective, but Benson was also a fan. All of these photos reflect Bobby in a positive light. Seeing these photos always makes me so sad to remember the excitement of those days & the thoughts of "what if", which still fill my brain & the brain of so many others, including Benson's.Read more ›

Benson's photography is great--but whoever edited the book flipped photos. Including the cover photo--which clearly has RFK's hair parted on the opposite side. C'mon guys--Published on July 12, 2008 by Kennedy follower
