A selection of more than 300 images collected by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, many never seen before, featuring the beloved and revered Kennedy family.
This remarkable history dates from 1878 through 1946 - up to the aftermath of WWII and the beginning of JFK's political career - and covers everything from the family's first home to beach vacations, from children's birthdays to first Communions. The images capture the formative years of a uniquely American dynasty, imparting a glowing nostalgia to the period and detailing the family's progress as it grows from a pair of turn-of-the-century newlyweds into a populous, vibrant clan of hopeful young men and women on the brink of their brilliant destinies. This is a piece of Americana that readers will treasure.
