Ronald Reagan, The Great Communicator; no modern president has captured the world's attention at such a pivotal point in history. He brought to the White House an easy charm, a firm hand, and the wit and wisdom to strengthen our hopes and let us once again see America as a shining city on a hill; a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans. On the eve of the 100th anniversarty of Reagan's birth, award winning historian Q. David Bowers presents a richly illustrated scrapbook that shares The Gipper's uniquely American story - from small-town Illinois to an exciting radio and movie career; to the governor's mansion in California, to center stage on the national and international political scenes. This special Golden Anniversary Collector's Vault includes more that just behind the scenes photos and insightful text. Tucked into pockets and envelopes you'll find dozens of replicas of amazing Reagan memorabilia: campaign bumper stickers, famous speeches, old postcards, newspaper clippings, and more. Family photographs, mounted album-style, personally autographed thanks you cards, warm-hearted letters to Nancy and his children. Official proclamations, and much more - pieces of history you can hold and share with your family.
