In the introduction, Gerald R. Ford writes that he learned about George Washington as a larger-than-life figure--an American icon. As he grew older, Ford expected to learn more about the man, but he found that Washington remained an enigma, "a soldier and statesman with a spotless reputation, a man so perfect that he seemed to lack color, depth, or imagination." This book is a condensation of Washington's most memorable statements. By reading Washington's own words, we can begin to understand the many facets of his character. The myth begins to sound like a man.

Published by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
