Overview

Few personified the changing lives of American women in the twentieth century more than Eleanor Roosevelt. Brought up with all the privileges of wealth, she was raised under the watchful tutelage of her endlessly energetic and domineering uncle, President Theodore Roosevelt. After her marriage to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was himself bent on occupying the White House, Eleanor evolved from a Victorian debutante into one of the world's most respected advocates for human rights. Here, in this short-form book by historians Willard Sterne Randall and Nancy Nahra, is the unforgettable story of the "first lady of the world."
