President Johnson often invited favored reporters to the LBJ Ranch, including Horner on multiple occasions throughout his presidency. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Lyndon Baines Johnson was born on August 27, 1908, near Stonewall, Texas, in a small farmhouse on the Pedernales River. He was the oldest of five children born to Samuel Ealy Johnson Jr. and Rebekah Baines. Johnson had English, German, and Ulster Scots ancestry.
