Claudia Alta Taylor received her nickname "Lady Bird" as a small child and as "Lady Bird" she is known and loved throughout America today. "Bird" was President Lyndon Johnson's partner, confidante, and helpmate. She helped his Congressional office open during World War II when he volunteered for naval service and in 1955, when he had a severe heart attack, she helped his staff keep things running smoothly until he could return to his post as Majority Leader of the Senate. She created a First Lady's Committee for a More Beautiful Capital, then expanded her program to include the entire nation. She took a highly active part in her husband's war-on-poverty program, especially the Head Start project for preschool children. This book traces Lady Bird's life in a lively, informative and entertaining manner. (Imprint: Nova History Press)
