Covering their lives from childhood to the end of the Georgia governorship, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter is one of the few major biographies of an American president that pays significant attention to the First Lady. So deeply were their lives and aspirations intertwined, a close friend once remarked: "You can't really understand Jimmy Carter unless you know Rosalynn." The story of one is the story of the other. To recount their remarkable lives, E. Stanly Godbold, Jr. draws on academic and military records, the governor's correspondence, the recollections of the Carters themselves, as well as original, unpublished interviews with a wide variety of participants in the Carters' political and personal lives. The book reveals a man who was far more complex than the peanut farmer of popular myth, a man who cited both Reinhold Niebuhr and Bob Dylan as early influences on his legal philosophy, was heir to a sizable fortune, and who, with the help of Rosalynn, built a lucrative agribusiness. Nicknamed "Hotshot" by his father, Carter was the first president born in a hospital, rode a motorcycle before entering politics, counted Tolstoy, Dylan Thomas, William Faulkner, and James Agee among his favorite authors, and claimed his wife Rosalynn as the most influential person in his life. Volume I in this two-volume biography details how the Carters rose to power, managed their private and public lives, governed Georgia, and seized control of the national Democratic party. The cast of colorful characters includes "Miss Allie" Smith, "Mr. Earl" and "Miss Lillian," brother Billy, Rachel Clark, Admiral Rickover, George Wallace, Lester Maddox, Richard Nixon, daughter Amy, Charles Kirbo, Hamilton Jordan, Jody Powell, and many more. It is a sweeping, Faulknerian tale of individuals who would change the image of the South in the national mind and the role of the South in the presidency. Indeed, Carter shocked the state of Georgia and the entire country by calling for an end to racial discrimination in 1971, thus launching his national political career. Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter neither sanctifies nor vilifies the Carters but offers instead an even-handed, brilliantly researched, and utterly absorbing account of two ordinary people whose lives together took them to the heights of power and public service in America.

This is a thoughtful and well-written study about teamwork, the teamwork of a husband and wife with very great ambitions but starting from a very small town. Rosalyn proves to be as much a part of Carter's career as he was, supporting when necessary, pushing when necessary. The degree of their ambition and political cunning may surprise some who see Carter only as the benevolent do-gooder, but that is what it takes to make it to any high level in politics. This biography does a good job of capturing the love story, which is genuine, the compassion, also genuine, as well as the political ruthlessness.

Mr. Household presents an in depth study into President Carter's early years with an attention to detail I've never seen. This volume is a must read for all history students.

I have mixed feelings about this book. While some of the material in the book were very interesting and informative, I found other parts to dragged out and boring. I'm a Cater fan and was hoping for a better read.
Yozshubei
This easy-reading book portrays the Carters as the genuine people they are and with their great compassion for all people. It brings out many interesting details from early in their lives.
Dagdalas
Since I wrote this book, I naturally think it is the best account available of this fascinating couple's personal and professional lives through Carter's governorship. Those who wish to understand the Carter presidency and post-presidency will find this account of their lives in Plains, the Navy, and Georgia politics essential.

Lived in Georgia most of my life so familiar with President and Mrs. Carter. I even worked at his campaign headquarters during 1976 campaign. Interesting to read about the early years.
Hellmaster
I learned a great deal more about these two people who have come to respect so much since the presidential years. They have done so much to help poor people to get decent housing through Habitat for Humanity. However, their record in the earlier years in politics was very disappointing to me.
Throughly enjoyed he book...
