The Years of Lyndon Johnson: v.1: Path to Power

Author(s): Robert A. Caro


This is the story of the rise to national power of a desperately poor young man from the Texas Hill Country. Revealed in extraordinary detail is the genesis of that almost superhuman drive, energy and ambition which set LBJ apart. An acclaimed biography it charts his boyhood through the years of the Depression to his debut as a Congressman, his heartbreaking defeat in his first race for the Senate and his attainment, nonetheless, at the age of 31 of the power for which he hungered. In this riveting book we are shown more clearly than every before the true nature of political genius.
