Book Description

This volume presents thirty-nine interpretive biographical essays on all first ladies, from Martha Washington to America's newest First Lady, Laura Bush. This new edition contains updated material on all the living First Ladies and updated bibliographies for each entry, as well as a portrait of the newest First Lady.


"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
