Over a span of eighteen years, Lady Bird Johnson recorded forty-seven oral history interviews with Michael Gillette and his colleagues. These conversations, just released in 2011, form the heart of Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History, an intimate story of a shy young country girl’s transformation into one of America’s most effective and admired First Ladies. This volume reveals how instrumental Lady Bird Johnson’s support and guidance were at each stage of her husband’s political ascent and how she herself emerged as a significant political force.
