I remember reading this in high school and loving it.

I read this 37 years ago, but I still remember things like learning that the presidents use several pens to sign bills which are then special gifts to those involved. Lady Bird called her daughter a little girl, even though she was 16! Lady Bird was instrumental in beautification of roadways, and her efforts can still be seen on the interstates in Texas--pretty crepe myrtles planted in the middle.
I was a child/teenager during the Johnson presidency, and I loved reading about Lady Bird's experiences. It gave me a new appreciation for the demands placed upon the US President and family members. History was recorded as it was happening from a unique perspective. It's a long book, and I read it slowly.
Had to abandon for now! Prioritizing! Enjoying this so far - though there is so much information in it that I find myself scanning over the details of her days to find the nuggets of her personality and wisdom. She would have been a pleasure to know, I am sure of it!
I love the 60s and I love Lady Bird Johnson. My parents bought this book for me after a recent trip to her Wildflower Center in Austin. I look forward to reading the book this summer.
I have read bits and pieces of this book and I have to say: she's not my choice of a heroine, but my God, she's just so NICE. I want her to be my aunt or my nurse or something. I kind of love her.
Of course I immediately read the part about the earliest days of the administration, following the assasination of Kennedy. A welcome addition to my White House library.
Very intersting reading and insights from Lady Bird Johnson.
Long-read that might come off as recording the White House on-goings during the Johnson Administration in an overly meticulous way for some people, but I really loved it.
Great insight into the national mindset just after the Kennedy assassination. Lady Bird was truly a lady.
This BOok is fucking stu[id
