Reviews

"From Martha Washington to Laura Bush (pre-term), this work includes 39 extensive biographical essays which interpret the changing role of the First Lady in American history. Far greater depth than most other work of this sort." -- Pennsylvania School Librarians Association Best Reference Titles 2001 selection

"If your library needs a good reference book on the first ladies, this would be an obvious choice." -- Against the Grain
