This is a story about a poor old West Virginia hillbilly and his experiences. These exciting experiences include sitting in the Oval Office at the White House, sitting the President of the United States, Harry S. Truman's, chair and going through his desk drawers. It includes confessions of stealing property from the President and pretending to be the President. The experiences also include being present and covering the arrivals and visits of kings, queens, dignitaries, movie stars and world leaders. There are stories of being friends and acquaintances with Senators, Congressmen, Governors, Mayors, and providing them with thousands of photographs. There's detailed experiences with card hustlers, card sharks, in military and civilian clubs from Washington, DC to Anchorage, Alaska. This book includes excellent photographs of the Alaskan earthquake of 1964. Stories of traveling with All-American Football players. There are many situations of beating military personnel that were cheating in card games and exposing them for their action. This is a very interesting story and that is the way it was.
