Twenty-two books are planned for the start of the series in spring of 2002. Each book in the Presidents series explores the life and political career of an American president. The text begins with an important event in the president's life, and then recounts the story of one who has held our nation's highest office. These full-color books include portraits, Internet screen captures, and if applicable, images of important documents.
In Andrew Johnson, author Judy Alter gives insight to Abraham Lincoln's successor. Born into terrible poverty, Johnson received no formal schooling, only training as a tailor. As a result of his ambition and interest in political affairs, Andrew Johnson went on to become a distinguished legislator, governor, and member of Congress. During his administration, Johnson was often at odds with Congress over his Reconstruction policies, which eventually led to his impeachment.
