From the Publisher:
Traces the life of Franklin Delano Roosevelt from his birth in 1882 through his youth, early political career, and presidency to his death in Warm Springs, Georgia, in 1945."The author of a splendid, Newbery Award-winning Lincoln (1987) uses a similar approach to another monumental figure. The result is a carefully researched biography, extended by a wealth of well-chosen b&w photos presented with clarity and precision . . . easily the best biography of its subject available at this level".--Kirkus Reviews, pointer review. 125 archival photos and prints.
