From founding fathers, such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, to presidential heroes, such as Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Books offer a complete library of the United States presidents. Each book in the Presidents series explores the life and political career of an American president. Each book includes color photographs, 48 pages, chapter notes, a further reading list, a highlights page, and an index. The Report Links take the reader to the best Web sites, source documents, and photos related to each president.Author Tim O'Shei profiles the life and career of Gerald Ford, the only president who was not elected to either the presidency or vice presidency. Chosen by President Nixon to fill the office left vacant by the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew, Ford assumed the presidency after Nixon himself resigned. As president, Ford, known as an impeccably honest official, had the unenviable task of trying to restore the American people's faith in the federal government after the Watergate scandal.
