Eleanor Roosevelt wasn't content to be a seldom-seen, never-heard First Lady. Instead, she worked tirelessly for the many causes dear to her heart, including the rights of African Americans, women, and the poor. After Franklin D. Roosevelt's death, she traveled the world promoting peace in the aftermath of World War II. Roosevelt was so beloved she became known as the First Lady of the World. This extraordinary woman?s life and work is presented in this charming biography that utilizes her own words from her prolific writings. Roosevelt?s wit, charm, and intelligence shine in each passage, while carefully chosen photographs reflect important moments in her life.
