This equally remarkable book comes with a bonus-a CD full of photographs that cover President Kimball’s life from childhood through his years leading the Church.  The CD also contains a longer version of the text which was unable to be fit into the book.

For all of us who have missed President Kimball so much, enjoy this journey in memory.
