This personal history examines the Roosevelts' heritage and traditions and explores their public trials, tragedies, and triumphs, as well as the frustrations and disappointments of their private lives. Campobello played a vital role in the formation of character for both Franklin and Eleanor, providing outlets for physical activity and emotional escape. At Campobello, Franklin was afflicted by polio, the most defining event in both their private lives and public careers.
