The White House

by Ray O'Ryan, Catherine O'Neill Grace
With a forward by Mrs. Laura Bush, and created in collaboration with the White House Historical Association, The White House tells the authoritative story of the building and its inhabitants.

Through fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpses of the White House captured in more than 200 photographs, many of which were taken specifically for the book, and unprecendented personal interviews with the staff so that their faces and voices could be brought to life, weaved together with an engaging narrative that leads the reader through the lifespan of the house, The White House: An Illustrated is an all encompassing look at this famous American landmark.
