Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802869432, Paperback)

Gerald R. Ford (1913–2006), the thirty-eighth president of the United States, grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and by all accounts modeled exemplary behavior. In this biography Hendrik Booraem carefully examines that image and the reputation that Ford earned during his early years, telling about Ford’s life up until his graduation from the University of Michigan in 1935.
 
Booraem uses in-depth research of numerous written sources — plus interviews with some twenty people who personally knew Ford — to show how Jerry Ford excelled at academics and athletics, forging his way through challenges, family difficulties, economic setbacks, and more on his way to a remarkable political career. Booraem’s historical portrait offers fascinating insight into the early years of this president who sought to heal the nation at a very low point in its history.
