Letters HomeBook - 1984
Letters Home by Harry Truman is a fascinating collection of colorful letters and "diary notes" by Truman, all compiled and edited by Monte Poen. The letters, gathered from many sources, include missives sent by Truman to his daughter, his mother and sister, his cousins, and of course his wife, Bess. This potpourri of information provides an intimate and revealing portrait of a man who went from being a farmer in dire straits -- trying to make enough money to marry the woman he loved -- to becoming the leader of the most powerful country in the free world.
