This well written and substantial book offers an unusual approach to the history of the American presidency by concentrating on the office's place of residence. Beginning with the building of the White House and continuing, president by president, John Whitcomb (he teaches American history, we're not told where) and his daughter Claire (a staff writer for House & Garden among other magazines) give us the details of the daily life of America's first families, continuing each chapter beyond Washington to tell how each president finished his days.
