From his vantage point as the youngest Nixon son, Edward Nixon gives an insider's perspective not only on his famous brother and his remarkable life, but also on the two extended families that produced this man of profound intellect and influence.No other President has been tested as Richard Nixon was, but her never let adversity weaken his faith and undermine his determination. Now meet the people who journeyed through life with this extraordinary man and helped him build his legacy.

Author Biography

Edward C. Nixon has spent the last five decades pursuing the responsible use of natural resources around the globe. After receiving his bachelor's and master's degrees from Duke and NC State, he embarked on a successful career working for and serving as an advisor to several cutting edge companies in the field of earth science. He is president of Nixon World Enterprises, Inc., and current chairman of the Pyron Solar Advisory Board in San Diego, California. By reflecting on heritage, education, extensive world travel, plus the encouragement of his older brother, President Richard Nixon, the author tells the story of an ordinary family striving to make a positive difference in the world. Their global mission aims to inspire more young Americans to reach for a new threshold of greatness for the country.
