Summary, etc.:
Before Joe and Rose Kennedy's children emerged as leaders on the world stage, they were simply a loving circle of brothers and sisters who played football, swam, sailed, read, and pursued their interests. They were children inspired by their parents, who instilled in them a strong work ethic, a deep love of country, and an intense appreciation for the sacrifices their ancestors made to come to America. With charming anecdotes and dozens of rarely seen family photographs, Jean Kennedy Smith's book offers indelible, elegantly rendered portraits of a closely knit family known throughout the world. -- adapted from book jacket.
