About the Book

Not everyone can say that Frank Sinatra’s cigarette burned a hole in their coat, that they dined twice with Marilyn Monroe in one day, or that they were invited to a party at the home of John “Duke” Wayne.

In a memoir consisting of more than one hundred short anecdotes, Elvin C. Bell provides a fascinating glimpse into his journey through life as he crossed paths with several iconic personalities that included presidents Kennedy, Nixon, Johnson, and Carter; Elvis Presley; the father of the hydrogen bomb, Dr. Edward Teller; John Lennon; Gregory Peck; four Medal of Honor recipients; Walt Disney; and General Alexander Haig.

It Was a Good Road All the Way is a collection of heartfelt personal stories from a retired USAF Colonel and public official that reveal his encounters with superstars, detail his victories and losses on the battlefield, and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
