This book takes readers behind the scenes of the final years of Harry Truman, whose presidency began fifty years ago. It details the almost impossible expectations placed on members of a first family and how a grandson has worked to climb out of Harry Truman's very considerable shadow. The words of that grandson, the eldest son of Margaret Truman and Clifton Daniel, tell the intimate story.
