About this title

Synopsis:

First Lady for 12 years and an enduring presence among the world's most admired women, Eleanor Roosevelt reached millions of Americans through her syndicated newspaper column. This collection, a representative sampling of a decade of "My Day" pieces, reveals a First Lady unconventional for her time in her role as the president's peripatetic and reliable observer of world affairs, yet deeply traditional in observance of the rituals of family and friendships. As an advocate of progressive social programs, she was often the target of brickbats and caricature. Yet typical devotion to her can be found in a quote here of Adlai Stevenson, "Her glow . . . warmed the world." An ability to laugh at herself, to triumph over personal adversity in her own and in her chil dren's marriages, and a genuine interest in people are reflected in these columns, to which average Americans then and now can be responsive.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- These reminiscences are as fresh today as they were 53 years ago. This first of two volumes details the New Deal era, the effect of World War II on the country, Roosevelt's personal travels, and the Roosevelts' family life from 1936--1945. The introduction by Roosevelt's longtime friend, Martha Gellhorn, sets the time and circumstance of this amazing woman who remains one of our most respected first ladies. Chadakoff has skillfully chosen pertinent columns and has added historical documentation to enlighten readers about the context in which they belong. In addition to their historic value, the columns give readers a clear picture of the fishbowl existence of the first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt's insights, compassion, and ambition are clearly evident in this unique perspective on history that can be enjoyed by a broad spectrum of readers.
