Baker & Taylor Offers a portrait of the two-time governor of Texas, George W. Bush, and describes his political family and presidential aspirations
Book News Minutaglio, a Texas journalist who has worked for some of the state's major newspapers, tells the story of a powerful political family, beginning with the turn-of-the-century emergence of the influential Bush-Walker clan and of Prescott Bush, the Connecticut patrician who ingrained in his family an ethos that continues to exert influence on his son, former President George Bush, and his grandsons Jeb and George W. Bush. How these scions of the Bush dynasty struggle to live up to their legacy is the central theme of this colorful and perceptive portrait. Annotation c.
