About the Author

Lewis L. Gould is Eugene C. Barker Centennial Professor Emeritus in American History at the University of Texas at Austin. His other books include The Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt; Four Hats in the Ring: The 1912 Election and the Birth of Modern American Politics; and The Modern American Presidency.


Impressive scholarship [and] a well-written book. . . . Environmental historians will welcome the study, especially as it sheds light on the development of environmental consciousness in the 1960s, readers interested in the presidency will appreciate the detailed treatment given a First Lady, and the many general readers will enjoy the insights Gould brings to understanding Lady Bird Johnson herself.--Martin V. Melosi, author of The Sanitary City: Environmental Services in Urban America from Colonial Times to the Present Gould does a fine job of treating Lady Bird Johnson as a person in her own right and as a major figure involved in securing both funds and legislation for projects that have truly made a difference in the quality of the environment. . . . This is a story that merits publication [and] offers convincing evidence of Lady Bird Johnson's sincere and spirited commitment and of her role in beautifying the environment.--Joanna Schneider Zangrando, Skidmore College
