The author of 16 books, including the National Book Critics Circle Award winner A First-Class Temperament: The Emergence of Franklin Roosevelt, Ward again collaborates with filmmaker Burns to vivify American history. By giving us intimate portraits of Theodore, Eleanor, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the coauthors offer a larger picture of the entire family, uniting the Republican Roosevelts of Oyster Bay with the Democrat Roosevelts of Hyde Park to show a family with the strong sense of public service that's lacking today. Itself highly illustrated, the book serves as the basis of a seven-part PBS series that will take over prime time for an entire week, starting on September 14. With a 250,000-copy first printing.
