Christened Claudia Alta Taylor when she was born in a country mansion near Karnack, Texas, she received her nickname 'Lady Bird' as a small child: and as Lady Bird she is known and loved throughout America today. Perhaps that name was prophetic, as there has seldom been a First Lady so attuned to nature and the importance of conserving the environment. 'Bird' was President Lyndon Johnson's partner, confidante, and helpmate. She helped keep 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. He once remarked that voters: "would happily have elected her over me". 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 pre-school children. This new book traces Lady Bird's life in a lively, informative and entertaining manner.
