Presidential Vacations & Retreats: President and Mrs. Johnson at Their Ranch

President Lyndon Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson walk through a field of wildflowers at the LBJ Ranch, Stonewall, Texas. July, 1968. "All my life I have drawn strength and something more from those Texas Hills." Johnson's internal compass pointed west to the Texas hill country where visitors saw him at his most unvarnished, full of over- flowing exuberance. During his five years in the presidency, Johnson made the ranch a virtual extension of the White House.
