First Lady Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, childhood friends and dozens of others share their fond recollections of Jackie in As We Remember Her. This is the first time many of these people have ever spoken publicly about her, and the portrait that emerges is quite revealing. Behind the image of one of the 20th-century's most recognizable icons was a surprisingly substantive person -- a woman whose intelligence and political savvy were as remarkable as her famous charm and beauty. Jackie plunged fresh out of college into the world of journalism with her own girl-on-the-street column for the Washington Times. As First Lady, she waged campaigns on behalf of education, the arts and historic preservation, rescuing Washington's famed Lafayette Square from demolition. She was also a primary force in the creation of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Featuring intimate photos, touching first-hand accounts and an elegant design, As We Remember Her is a wonderful keepsake the many fans of Jackie O. will cherish for years to come.
