Alice: Alice Roosevelt Longworth, from White House Princess, to Washington Power Broker by Stacy A. Cordery is the riveting story of Theodore Roosevelt's first born daughter who, in his opinion, if she have been born male, clearly would have followed in his Presidential footsteps to the White House. Flowing along fast, this book reveals the complex, sad, sometimes bitterly disappointing life of this brilliant, challenged, rapier-witted, and often poison-tongued woman, especially in her undisguised dislike for her relatives, the "other" Roosevelts.
