Summary
"In 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt began a series of Fireside Chats over the radio in which he shared his hopes and plans with the American people and invited them to "tell me your troubles."" "The invitation was unprecedented and the response tremendous. Millions of letters flooded the White House mailroom from farmers, workers, businessmen, salesmen, housewives, the retired, the unemployed, and people of all races and ethnicities in big cities and small towns throughout the country."--Jacket
