About the Author

Lynne has long advocated teaching America's history to children. "They deserve to hear the inspiring stories of our country's founding," she says. "They should hear the tales of all those who have come since and made us a freer and better country." Mrs. Cheney is the author of many books, including the best-selling A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women and America: A Patriotic Primer, about which Time for Kids magazine said, "You may have learned your ABCs in kindergarten, but Lynne Cheney will teach you the alphabet in a whole new way." Mrs. Cheney holds a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, is a former chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Mrs. Cheney is married to Vice President Dick Cheney, and they have two daughters and three granddaughters. All of Mrs. Cheney's net profits from the sales of this book will be donated to charity.
