Editorial Reviews

Freedman has created a sensitive biography of Eleanor Roosevelt - certainly sympathetic but not overly adulatory; it captures her spirit. The beautifully crafted text flows smoothly and is accompanied by over one hundred black-and-white photographs portraying Roosevelt at every age. Young readers will find inspiration, hope, and guidance in the life of the outstanding woman. Bib., ind." - Copyright A® 1994 The Horn Book, Inc.
