Take an entertaining journey through time as you discover the stories behind the events that brought American presidents to the Zion of the West. Since 1875 when Ulysses S. Grant visited the Utah Territory, U.S. presidents have continued to trek to the shores of the Great Salt Lake and Brigham Young's blossoming desert rose. Through the decades, whether campaigning, helping friends at fundraisers, interacting at town hall meetings, meeting with Church officials, or participating in historic events, the nation's top leaders have come to Utah to press the flesh, plot strategies, and kiss babies in an effort to close the gap between the president and the people. You will be delighted with fascinating stories and anecdotes from American presidents' memorable visits from the time of the presidential Pullman railroad car to today's Air Force One. And if a picture is worth a thousand words, then this photographically rich book is worth millions. With more than 500 historical photographs, some never before published, and dozens of pieces of interesting memorabilia, this well-researched visual history highlights the warmth and hospitality of the people of the Beehive State. You may even find a photo of your grandfather, uncle, cousin, mother, or father in the crowd surrounding a visiting president. So sit back and enjoy this engaging book for a few minutes or a few hours, because history has never been more enjoyable.
