About this Item

212 pages, Some pencil underlining/marginal marks to text, DJ somewhat worn and soiled, DJ in plastic sleeve. Signed by the author. In this first, informal biography, an internationally syndicated newspaper columnist who has known the Johnson family for twenty years gives readers an intimate glimpse into the heart and household of Claudia Alta "Lady Bird" Johnson. Coming from a wealthy plantation background, Mrs. Lyndon Baines Johnson possesses the delicate beauty of a Southern belle, but behind her soft drawl lies the steel-trap mind that has made her a fantastically successful business executive. Notably well-educated for a woman of her era, she proved a capable manager and a shrewd investor. After marrying LBJ in 1934 when he was a political hopeful in Austin, Texas, she used a modest inheritance to bankroll his congressional campaign, and then ran his office while he served in the Navy. Next, she bought a radio station and then a TV station, which soon made them millionaires. As First Lady, she broke new ground by interacting directly with Congress, employing her own press secretary, and making a solo electioneering tour. Bookseller Inventory # 57309
