Beginning with the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy, which unexpectedly thrust her family into the White House, Mrs. Johnson records the momentous events fo her times, including the Great Society's War on Poverty, the national civil rights and social protest movements, her own activism on behalf of the environment, and the Vietnam War, which ultimately drove her husband to retire from political life. Interspersed among the public events are the private moments that reveal the humanity of a president's family--marriages, the births of grandchildren, and the anguish of sending sons-in-law to war."--P.
