American President’s Love Affair with the English Lake District
This book deals in detail with the visits of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th. President of the USA (1913-1921), to the English Lake District and the nearby city of Carlisle in Cumbria, England.
An American President’s Love Affair with the English Lake District – by Andrew Wilson (cover from the retitled first Edition)It was first published in June 1996 to coincide with the Centenary of Woodrow Wilson’s first visit to Carlisle, where his mother was born, and to the English Lake District, the area with which he fell in love. This was his first trip abroad, and his priority had been to visit Carlisle to see his mother’s birthplace and the church where his grandfather had preached, although it was only on a subsequent visit that he found the site.
