A Fine first printing of the first edition in a just about Fine dust-jacket that has some minor rear scuffing, signed by author and former US President Gerald Ford on the front flyleaf and title page.
A Time to Heal is at once the autobiography of a political career and the human story of a dedicated but unassuming man propelled by history into taking on the immense burdens of the Presidency. It is a dramatic, forthright and firsthand account of a decent man's effort to knit together a nation fragmented by Watergate and a White house staff often contentious and badly bruised by the legacy of the Nixon years. There are light moments as well, of family fun, irreverence, pleasure and warmth.
