Editors Note 1 Illustrated with vintage family photos, many never before published, Jacqueline Bouvier evokes the roots of a young Jacqueline whose style and courage would captivate millions worldwide. This account is written by her first cousin and offers a rare look at the people, places, and events that created this public, yet private, personality. Even as a girl, Davis says Jackie showed a penchant for rogues, foreshadowing her later marriages to the dashing but reckless JFK and the notorious Aristotle Onassis.
