Over the past two years Myles Eglevsky and Elizabeth Mizell helped Doris Buffett publish the limited-edition book, of which 400 copies exist. It is now for sale in two places: Amazon.com and The Griffin Bookshop in downtown Fredericksburg. Signed copies cost $125, unsigned versions $115.

True to form, Doris Buffett is giving away all the proceeds to her Sunshine Lady Foundation, which helps battered women, prisoners, the mentally ill and many others. Since 1996, she has given away more than $100 million through the foundation.

Doris Buffett said she met a lot of nice people during the project and had a great time chasing down details of her family's history. She hopes a younger member of the Buffett family will pick up the torch and continue the project.

"It's hugely fun if you have a curious mind," she said. "It was a wonderful adventure."
