Abstract:

"This newly updated edition of The First Ladies Fact Book is a comprehensive, fascinating, and intimate look at the life of each first lady from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama. Each profile includes a portrait, key biographical information, and several additional photographs. Among the topics covered are childhood and upbringing, early marriage years, the path to the White House, hobbies, career, style of dress, and decorating preferences. Find out which first lady: had the most children • served as a delegate to the United Nations • was accused of looting the White House • was a professional dancer • or never cooked a meal. Packed with information and surprising facts, The First Ladies Fact Book combines the breadth of a textbook with the intimacy of a biography."--Amazon.
