Lou Henry Hoover: A Prototype for First Ladies (A Volume in the Presidential Wives Series) $69.00
Authors: Dale C. Mayer 
Book Description:
Recent interest in the wives of American Presidents has led to the rediscovery of many First Ladies whose public service and accomplishments had been forgotten. The prime example is Lou Henry Hoover, a vivacious woman with a thoroughly modern approach to life, an unquenchable zest for living, and a long-term dedication to public service that dated from the Spanish-American War. This book provides readers with their first in-depth examination of the adventure-filled life and numerous public services of this complex and fascinating First Lady. (Imprint: Novinka)
