Presidential Retreats : Even the president needs to get away from it all sometimes. From George Washington to Barack Obama, each of our presidents has sought solace from the tightly structured daily routines of the White House. As Ronald Reagan once said of his California ranch, "I do some of my best thinking there." Peter Hannaford takes readers on a fascinating armchair vacation with each of our leaders, offering unique historical context for the why and the where of their chosen retreats. Presidential Retreats explores a side of the American presidency that we don't often see - the downtime - as it offers an intriguing glimpse at the evolution of leisure time in this country.
