The story of Barack Obama's journey to the presidency. This 144-page, hard-cover, full-color book collects the best writing and photographs from McClatchy's Washington Bureau and its 30 newspapers. It presents one of the most compelling portraits ever of this unprecedented election from the country's third largest newspaper company.
Includes an introduction by Julian Bond, and more than 25 final Inauguration photographs. Plus the president's full inaugural address, and his signature on his first piece of business - a proclamation.
The book's title comes from Obama's speech on race given in Philadelphia: "I have brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, uncles and cousins, of every race and every hue, scattered across three continents, and for as long as I live, I will never forget that in no other country on Earth is my story even possible."
