Glossy color photographs lavishly depict the residences of the governors of 44 states (six states do not have governor's mansions). Each state's mansion receives its own section picturing public and private rooms, exterior and grounds, and artworks and furnishings within. Text combines architectural description and attention to interior decoration with historical anecdotes and occasional reference to the lives of the residents; Keating, First Lady of the State of Oklahoma, assures us in her introduction that "First Families are people, too."
