Just twenty years later, he presented his credentials as ambassador to the Court of St. Jamess to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace.

In this engaging memoir, he retraces his journey from Texas outsider to Washington insider, providing a fascinating look at the glamour, day-to-day work, and even occasional danger that come with being a high-level representative of the United States government.Cattos posts brought him into contact with the worlds most powerful leaders and left him with a wealth of stories, which he recounts amusingly in these pages. He was the official host for Queen Elizabeths visit to America during the Bicentennial year and one of Jose Napoleon Duartes protectors after his failed 1972 coup attempt in El Salvador.

Catto accompanied Richard Nixon on his historic trip to Russia, sparred with Bill Moyers and the producers of 60 Minutes as Caspar Weinbergers spokesman at the Pentagon, and hosted George Bushs planning meeting with Margaret Thatcher at the beginning of the Persian Gulf War. In telling these and other stories, he offers behind-the-scenes glimpses into how political power really works in Washington, London, and other world capitals.
