Ronald Reagan : From Sports to Movies to Politics
by Libby Hughes




Overview -
Two-year-old Neil Reagan stared at his new brother and squawked, "I wanted a sister, not a loud crying brother " Little did big brother Neil know that someday his baby brother would become the fortieth president of the United States.

In this colorful biography, Libby Hughes chronicles the life of Ronald Wilson Reagan, beginning in the small, remote town of Tampico, Illinois, and ending ninety-three years later at his home in Bel-Air, California. Reagan started his diverse career as an Iowa radio sportscaster and later acted in more than fifty movies. He served as president of the Screen Actor's Guild, won a landslide victory as governor of California, and served two terms as the president of the United States.

Ronald Reagan--nicknamed "Dutch"--was a jokester and a storyteller whose straight-talking, Midwestern style attracted the admiration of friends as well as world leaders. Ronald Reagan: From Sports to Movies to Politics will remind you why the Great Communicator became one of America's favorite presidents.

"Whatever else history may say about me when I'm gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts."--Ronald Reagan, fortieth president of the United States
