"Chet Huntley: Newscaster From The West A New Kind Of Book" is published in English and is in a 6 x 9 softcover format. In addition to the front and back cover photos, there are also more black and white photograps in the book, some of which have rarely been seen before. 

The reason for the phrase "a new kind of book" in the title is that the literary template mixes the use of biography; descriptive writing; history (both U.S. and also much of the early days of American radio and television journalism); inspirational lessons, and numerous other items. The book also has a list of questions which can be used by instructors as a sort of template for creating an exam, about the book, for their students. The book can be purchased by clicking onto the shppping cart link on this website, or by calling the toll-free telephone number 1-855-456-4793. The book will be ready for publication in the fall of 2008.
