Editorial Reviews

Review

"...engaging, anecdote-filled...handsomely illustrated and painstakingly researched,it would fit equally well on a coffee table or in a historical library." Harper Barnes, Editor St. Louis Magazine

"She brightened the pages with numerous short sidebars, including humorous and colorful anecdotes about various families." Sue Ann Wood, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"...a social history of Mansion life written largely from the perspective of the governor's dinner table." Dr. Kenneth H. Winn, Missouri State Archivist

"...the only comprehensive history of Missouri's First Families and lives in the Governor's Mansion...breezy and beautiful, this extensively researched masterpiece is delightful and a perfect gift." Mary Pat Abele, Missouri Mansion Preservation -- Reviews

About the Author

Much like an archaeologist, Jean Carnahan, wife of Missouri Governor's Mel Carnahan, has chosen to mark her time in the Governor's Mansion by sifting through its intriguing history and folklore, revealing the faces and fables of its many residents.

The First Lady is a graduate of George Washington University in Washington D.C. where she grew up and married a congressman's son before migrating to the Midwest. The mother of four children--all lawyers--she is also a savvy political partner and fund-raiser, as well as an advocate for Missouri's children and for the arts. In this her first published work, Mrs. Carnahan describes herself as an "amateur historian" with a "romance for words and storytelling." She adds, "This intriguing peek into the past should elicit both pleasure and pride from all those who call themselves Missourians and envy from all those who wish they could."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This handsome and well written book is the work of Missouri's newest Senator, and former First Lady, Jean Carnahan. The stories collected here about both the Governor's Mansion and the first families of Missouri are a treat for all Missourians. This book would be a great gift for anyone who loves Missouri or is interested in Missouri politics or history. I have bought this book for several libraries in memory of the author's husband, the late Governor Mel Carnahan. The prose and photography included in the book are exceptionally well done.

I thought it would be more about the Carahans living in the Manison! My mother was Govenor Joe Teasdales' personal chef....of course she was not mentioned but that's ok, she wrote a journal of her days in the Manison!
