Presidents on holiday

by ceramicker (WorldCat user published 2016-09-07) Excellent Permalink

A concise overview of the presidents' vacation homes and getaways, what they liked to do there, with whom, and how these places may have affected national policy decisions.  Plenty of personal color and anecdotes by a reporter who has covered the White House for 30 years.
