Abstract:

Chronicling the startling early emergence of Johnson's political genius, it follows him from his Texas boyhood through the years of the Depression in the Texas Hill country to his congressional debut.

Reveals in detail the genesis of the almost superhuman drive, energy, and ambition that set LBJ apart. It follows him from the Texas Hill Country to New Deal Washington, from his boyhood through the years of the Depression to his debut as Congressman, his defeat in his first race for the Senate, and his attainment, nonetheless, at age 31, of the national power for which he hungered.
