Overview
Jimmy Carter, president from 19771981, is widely regarded as one of the most forward-thinking politicians. After a fascinating term in office, with accomplishments including his creation of the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense, Carter went on to win a Nobel Peace Prize, sell millions of copies of books, and become an international activist. Today, at ninety-one, Carter has just been cured of an aggressive form of cancerand now, more than ever, a celebration of his life is in order.
This unique, beautifully designed volume features 150 photographs of Carter from both well-known public events and more private moments. Inside we see images of Jimmy Carter as a young Georgia boy, a peanut farmer, unaware of the great accomplishments that lie ahead; as a dapper navy officer; a young father and rising politician; in the Oval Office instructing his staff; receiving a Nobel Peace Prize; and finally, in his later years, as a cancer survivor and a fearless humanitarian and advocate for civil rights.
The majority of the photographs from this keepsake volume have been sourced from the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum, in Atlanta, and are paired with some of Carter s most riveting speechesone in which he introduced the energy crisis, for exampleas well as some of Carter s most affective quotes.
