Click here to read the accompanying story by David Baldacci, who first met the Bushes a decade ago. An excerpt:

…Our families have spent some memorable times together. Once, my son accidentally locked himself into one of their powder rooms at Walker’s Point, and Mrs. Bush had to ask someone to break a century-old window to get him out. Another time, the former President took me for a ride on his boat, Fidelity III. He said he only had one rule onboard: If he was driving too fast, I should raise my hand. After the seventh time that I was levitated out of my seat by the boat coming fully out of the water, I swallowed my pride and raised my hand. Bush looked at me mischievously, said “Faster?”—and then sped up.

UPDATE: Doug just emailed me these terrific outtakes from the shoot:
