Lady Bird Johnson
Over a span of eighteen years, Lady Bird Johnson recorded forty-seven oral history interviews with Michael Gillette and his colleagues. These conversations, just released in 2011, form the heart of Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History, an intimate story of a shy young country girl's transformation into one of America's most effective and admired First Ladies. Lady Bird Johnson's odyssey is one of personal and intellectual growth, political and financial ambition, and a shared life with Lyndon B. Johnson, one of the most complicated, volatile, and powerful presidents in the twentieth century. These pages reveal how instrumental Lady Bird's support and guidance were at each stage of her husband's political ascent and how she herself emerged as a significant political force.
