Book Description:

Eleanor Roosevelt’s character was shaped by the history and culture of the Hudson Valley. More than that, Eleanor Roosevelt loved the Hudson Valley. A woman who knew and cared for the whole world chose this place, Val-Kill, as her home in a cottage by a stream. Eleanor Roosevelt: A Hudson Valley Remembrance reflects her unaffected simplicity and caring interest in her neighbors’ concerns. Remembered by friends, colleagues, neighbors, and young people, these qualities inspired a community-based group to lead efforts to save her home in 1977 as the country’s first national historic site dedicated to a First Lady. The Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill continues her work on issues that affect life today.

Author Bio: The authors were founding members of the effort to save Val-Kill and served as officers on the Eleanor Roosevelt Center Board of Directors. Joan Spence later became the first executive director, and Joyce C. Ghee was awarded the Val-Kill Medal in 2003. Prior to researching and writing Eleanor Roosevelt: A Hudson Valley Remembrance, the two coauthored four other books in Arcadia’s Images of America series.
