About this Item

"The first volume of THERE WILL BE DANCING: THE HISTORY OF A JOHNSON FAMILY unveiled the past. The second volume reveals the present, which is sometimes just as mysterious because we live in it and do not have the luxury of viewing the whole landscape from a distance. Collected here are the stories of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth generations of the Johnson family. Taken one by one, these life stories are sometimes deeply touching, sometimes quirky or amusing, sometimes well-known, sometimes new and unfamiliar. Taken as a whole they give us a wider perspective, and perhaps provide a map of where we are and where we are going. One thing that seems striking in this volume is the extent to which later generations have attempted to repay the generosity of their forebears by giving of themselves to the world. There are, for example, over forty-five educators and over thirty-four healthcare professionals {doctors, nurses, therapists, and others} listed in this volume, working with special needs students, helping children with AIDS, supporting new mothers in Kenya, teaching hopeful medical students in India. Others in this book have given years of their lives-and sometimes made the ultimate sacrifice-in the service of their country, in places as far distant as the Pacific Theater of World War II and the troubled Middle East of today. Also noticeable are the number of artists, musicians, architects, engineers, financiers, and writers, each in its own way a giving profession." The book has 253 pages and is profusely illustrated. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Susan E. Keats, to the Weyerhaeuser family. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from Ned Johnson, to the Weyerhaeuser family. Edward "Ned" Johnson. Edward "Ned" Johnson is chairman of the board of Fidelity Investments, one of the world's largest and most profitable mutual fund investment firms. Overall, this is a FINE copy with FINE dustjacket of this EXTREMELY SCARCE SIGNED copy of this title. Bookseller Inventory # 062738
