Eleanor Rooseveltby Mary Winget
Eleanor Roosevelt was one of America's best-known and most-beloved first ladies. Born into a privileged home in 1884, Eleanor had an uncommon empathy for ordinary and disadvantaged people. She worked tirelessly throughout her lifetime to help people find relief from discrimination, poverty, and oppression. Eleanor not only worked to rally Americans during America's Great Depression and World War II, she also spoke out on behalf of civil rights and sought to expand roles for women. Eleanor never thought of herself as special, but in her lifetime she proved that an ordinary woman could do extraordinary things. This warm portrait provides new insight into a woman who remains an inspiring role model.
