In these intimate letters, Eleanor Roosevelt and Isabella Greenway chronicle a fifty-year friendship dating back to their school days at the beginning of the twentieth century. They share family concerns, discuss national and world affairs, support each other in times of personal tragedy, and chart their respective political careers - Roosevelt as a social reformer and first lady and Greenway as Arizona's first congresswoman. Kristie Miller's and Robert McGinnis' astute analysis and insightful commentary enable scholars and general readers to view this remarkable correspondence against the backdrop of state and national politics, the Depression and New Deal, and the changing roles of women in American society.
