Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Franklin Delano Roosevelt claimed the American Presidency during a very hard time in American history. Hundreds of thousands of Americans were without jobs because of the Great Depression. Many people lost their homes and ended up on the street, and hundreds of families took to the road trying to find work, any work, so that they could put food on the table. Franklin Delano Roosevelt understood that this was a time of crisis, and he was not afraid to take extreme measures to try to get the country back on its feet. In this collection of books you will find titles that describe Franklin Delano Roosevelt's own personal battles, and will learn all about what he did for those who needed his help. Readers who are interested in Franklin Delano Roosevelt might like to look at the collection of books about Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin's courageous wife.
