From the pen of journalist and filmmaker, Gilson Hoyt Willets, came one of the most fascinating collections of stories of the first century of the White House. From Adams to Roosevelt, Willets gathered intimate and detailed anecdotes of First Families, weddings in the White House, times of crisis, times of great humor, and the tragic deaths of some of America's presidents.

In nearly 110 years, this volume has hardly been surpassed as one of the best histories of the lives of early occupants of the most famous home in the world. First Ladies and First Children are here, as are the pets and activities that most amused the residents. Visits by notables from all over the world are chronicled as well, and even the meals served to them.

No matter how much you've read about the White House and its temporary occupants, you'll find riveting and amusing stories here that you've never read before.
