Publisher's Summary

In The Reagan I Knew, the late William F. Buckley Jr. offers a reminiscence of 30 years of friendship with the man who brought the American conservative movement out of the political wilderness and into the White House. Reagan and Buckley were political allies and close friends throughout Reagan's political career. They went on vacations together and shared inside jokes.

For all the words that have been written about him, Ronald Reagan remains an enigma. His former speechwriter Peggy Noonan called him "paradox all the way down," and even his son despaired of ever truly knowing him. But Reagan was not an enigma to William F. Buckley Jr. They understood and taught each other for decades, and together they changed history.

    "Wow What A Book!"

    I can't say enough about this book. It's full of historical moments, wonderful letters between WFB and the Reagans and insights into the two men that are entertaining and fascinating. This book is a MUST have if you were a fan of Reagan or Buckley or both. You will learn things you didn't know and find yourself with even more appreciation for these two titans.
