From the backbreaking work of picking cotton in the hot Arkansas sun, the daughter of a poor sharecropper, to the dressmaker for the First Lady of the United States, Martha Dixon's story is uniquely American. Starting with nothing but an entrepreneurial drive, Ms. Dixon rose to the peak of her profession. Triumph Beyond Measure is an impossible story that became possible. A tale of a woman who believed in herself and set her sights high. Inspirational, motivational, and steeped in lessons learned along the way, Triumph Beyond Measure will leave you cheering. "They said you need to crawl before you can walk," writes Ms. Dixon, "but I didn't want to walk. Nor did I want to run. I wanted to fly." Rags to riches.
From the poorhouse to the White House. Triumph Beyond Measure is a story everyone should read.
