Sunrise at Campobello
Transcript of Sunrise at Campobello
-Franklin D. Roosevelt: An American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States.
Beginning at the Roosevelt family's vacation home on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada, in the summer of 1921, Franklin is depicted in early scenes as vigorously athletic, enjoying games with his children and sailing his boat. Suddenly stricken with fever and then paralysis, some of the scenes focus on the conflict in the following weeks between the ill FDR, his wife Eleanor, his mother Sara, and his close political adviser Louis Howe over FDR's political future.
This drama based book was really decent. It gave some information about Roosevelt's life and struggling with his fever and paralysis. In today's society you would never hear of such information in some world history books. FDR had the determination to get where he wanted to be in the political area and his paralysis didn't stop him from speaking at the party convention which is motivating to me.
