There was no bowling alley and there was no library in Plains, Georgia. In her book, "First Lady from Plains," Rosalynn Carter reflects on her childhood and her time at the White House. Times were tough, explained Carter, but she never knew they were poor. Carter went on numerous radio interviews in the hopes that the public would learn who her husband was.
