"This is the story that I tell my grandchildren at Christmas. I hope that this book will bring the tradition of sharing history to families all across America." -- Lynne Cheney Christmas night, 1776, was a troubled time for our young country. In the six months since the Declaration of Independence had been signed, General George Washington and his troops had suffered defeat after defeat at the hands of the British. It looked as though our struggle for independence might be doomed, when Washington made a bold decision. He would lead the main body of his army across the Delaware River and launch a surprise attack on enemy forces. Washington and his men were going against the odds. It seemed impossible that the ragtag Americans could succeed against the mightiest power in the world. But the men who started across the icy Delaware loved their country and their leader. Under his command they would turn the tide of battle and change the course of history. Best-selling author Lynne Cheney tells the dramatic story of the military campaign that began on Christmas night in 1776. When Washington Crossed the Delaware will teach the young about the heroism, persistence, and patriotism of those who came before them.
Telling the truth : why our culture and our country have stopped making sense, and what we can do about it by Lynne V Cheney ( Book )
7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,071 libraries worldwide
America is in the middle of a vast experiment, says Lynne V. Cheney, testing whether a society can thrive when more and more of its citizens doubt the importance of truth - or even whether such a thing as truth exists. Schoolchildren are being taught that the ancient Egyptians flew in gliders. University students learn that science is a white male conspiracy. In fields ranging from history to law, scholars and practitioners alike argue that their goal is not truth but the advancement of politically useful views. Journalists fall into the same pattern when they disdain objectivity and use the news to advance their viewpoints, as do psychologists who help their patients "recover" memories of events that never happened. Public figures tell us one thing today and another tomorrow and blithely accuse those who point out their inconsistencies of an "excess of literalism." In our postmodern world, everything has become relative. "Truth," according to a film at the Whitney Biennial, has become nothing more than "what is believed." As Telling the Truth reveals, the battle against this irrationality is being waged on all fronts - not just on college campuses, where "political correctness" has been spotlighted, but in schools, in the workplace, in popular culture and the media, in the legal system, in politics and government. Telling the Truth is a systematic expose of the ways in which all of the doctrines that have come to the fore in our postmodern era - from multiculturalism to critical legal studies, from radical feminism to critical race theory - have affected not only the academy but also the wider society, where they threaten the foundations of our legal, political, and social order. Cheney shows in revealing detail how government agencies at both the state and federal level have funded scholarship, programs, and exhibitions that are part of the assault on truth. Most citizens, she contends, would object to these activities - if only they knew about them. A cry of alarm and an impassioned call to arms, Telling the Truth is essential reading for an understanding of America's intellectual and moral crisis.
Blue skies, no fences : a memoir of childhood and family by Lynne V Cheney ( Book )
28 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,026 libraries worldwide
Here, Lynne Cheney re-creates the years after World War II in a small town on the high plains of the West. Portraying an era that started with the Ink Spots on the Zenith Radio in her family's living room and ended with Elvis on the jukebox at the local canteen, she tells of coming of age in a time when the country seemed in control of its destiny and individual Americans in charge of theirs. She describes Casper, Wyoming, where she met a young man named Dick Cheney, and remembers her hometown as a place where the future seemed as bright as the blue sky and life's possibilities as boundless as the prairie. It was also a place where a pioneer heritage prevailed, and Cheney traces the paths of forebears who journeyed westward, strengthened against adversity by a bedrock belief that they would find a better life.--From publisher description.

"When President Jenner's confidential log is leaked to the Washington Post, the nation's capital begins to buzz. Why is the President spending so much time with a White House staffer who also happens to be a psychiatrist? For Newstime magazine's White House reporters Rudy Dodman and Sarah Hoff-and for the rest of the national media-the Post story sparks an examination of the the President's activities unparalleled since Watergate. Working against the clock and against their fellow reporters, Dodman and Hoff quickly find themselves entangled in a complex political crisis involving members of the press and the highest Washington officials, including: President Zern Jenner, the man from Montana, determined to stop the stories about the White House log without delay-even if it means lying to the American people; Nicholas Frye, the unscrupulous Post reporter, who would betray anyone, do anything, for a story; Vice-President Robert Boyston, whose own popular support swells as the President's emotional stability is questioned; Mary Jenner, the President's wife, a woman of intense tenacity and self-control, who refuses to admit to any weakness; Allen Crawford, the obsequious White House staffer, who uses the power of the Presidency to pursue his private passions; Jane Minnick, "Crazy Jane," a paranoid reporter who finds herself in the middle of a power struggle she doesn't understand; Malcolm Ewing, the missing White House staffer-is he merely a loyal aide, or the President's analyst? Dodman and Hoff's investigation takes them to the heart of a major government cover-up, and brings the country to the brink of an international crisis-forcing the two reporters to face questions that have become increasing difficult for today's press corps. Does the people's right to know always come before a public figure's right to privacy? Should the Chief Executive be able to declare some areas that might influence national policy "privileged"? Dodman's life is further complicated by his growing feelings for Sarah, as he also has an old-fashioned sense of responsibility to his wife and child that is rare in the social whirl of the capital."--BOOK JACKET.
