KIRKUS REVIEW

These letters will be an astonishing revelation to the majority of Americans who preserve the typical image of Woodrow Wilson. It is through them that we-see Wilson as a man -- his brilliance, courage, wit and insight. Although they speak but occasionally of national and world affairs -- the turbulent youthful letters of courtship during his studies, the letters written during separations after marriage, during the teaching years and finally the letters written from the White House -- all round out a touching portrait of a remarkable man. Edited with great skinn and loving humor by Wilson's youngest daughter, this collection is a must, especially for those who wish a deeper understanding of the men who have guided us in the past.
