Thanks to Nancy Woloch's richly evocative compilation, Eleanor Roosevelt can serve as a role model for future generations as well.--SUSAN WARE, general editor of American National Biography and author of Beyond Suffrage: Women in the New Deal

In this splendidly illustrated collection, the highlights of her many writings enable us to go shoulder-to-shoulder with ER into this embattled moment: hearts open, fists high.--BLANCHE WIESEN COOK, distinguished professor at John Jay College and author of a prize-winning three-volume biography of Elanor Roosevelt.
