A Very Private Public Citizen: The Life of Grenville Clark by Nancy Peterson Hill
Regularly $24.95 • Now $15 • 978-0-8262-2091-2 • paperback • 24 illus.
An enthusiastic husband, father, and friend, Clark was a lawyer, civil rights activist, traveler, advisor, and world citizen at large. Memories from Clark’s family and friends weave through the book, as do Clark’s own inimitable observations on his life and the world in which he lived. A Very Private Public Citizen brings Clark out of the shadows, offering readers an inspiring example of a true patriot and humanitarian, more concerned with the well-being of his country and his fellow man than with his own fame.
