About The Book

Back in the 1950s, billboards and junkyards cluttered America's scenic highways and byways. Who would fight to stop pollution?

Lady Bird Johnson, that’s who!

Who was as shy as a butterfly, but led bold efforts to conserve America's natural resources and beautify the nation?

Lady Bird Johnson, that’s who!

Who can also help clean up and green up America?

You, that's who!

Back matter includes additional facts, resources, and a bibliography of works for young and adult readers.
