What a Maine Road Trip Taught Eleanor Roosevelt
The story of a tour through Canada and northern Maine taken by Eleanor Roosevelt and her friend/partner Lorena Hickok in July of 1933. Details how the trip, originally intended as an escape from the stifling new role of First Lady, led to the women talking about life and potatoes with the owners of an Aroostook County farmhouse, a conversation which quietly launched Eleanor on her path as FDR's traveling eyes and ears.
