Description

Eleanor Roosevelt's niece celebrates the life and personality of her inimitable, groundbreaking aunt in this definitive collection of anecdotes and photographs. Previously unpublished, firsthand accounts, such as the time Roosevelt served hot dogs to the king and queen of England and how she learned to dive at the age of 60, reveal the exuberance and spontaneity with which she lived. Her niece details Roosevelt's entire life, from her awkward girlhood to the busy schedule she kept until her death in 1962. More than 180 duotones and handwritten notes complete this intimate portrait of the celebrated First Lady's life.
