President and Mrs.Reagan: An American

As the Reagans' favourite photographer, Harry Benson has long enjoyed a special relationship with the former first family of the USA, photographing them numerous times. Nancy Reagan invited Benson to photograph the couple together one last time, a bittersweet occasion given the former president's Alzheimer's disease. That portrait and others spanning nearly 40 years are gathered together in this volume, which also contains an introduction by Patti Davis about her parents, as well as Benson's own memories of his encounters with the Reagans.
