success. This book is a light-hearted personal story of a woman who raised two sons as a single Mom; graduated from Harvard; bought and managed rice farms and vineyards in Northern California; became president of the oldest and largest American farm women s organization; was for eight years a television hostess and producer; for two years a syndicated radio hostess; and for almost 22 years, a syndicated environmental columnist; served as a United Nations Delegate to the International Conferences on Women in Nairobi; was a Commissioner of the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science; and established an award-winning health and fitness organization on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The story begins with her childhood experiences in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, as part of a multi-generation New England family. She relates humorous stories about her Dad Ernest Henderson, a business entrepreneur who started Sheraton Hotel Chain with an investment of $ 1,000 and her practical minded socialite Mom who would host parties in the evening after shoveling coal to heat the home during World War II. She recounts her Dad s efforts to promote racial equity and his strong beliefs in fair treatment. Her story describes her first marriage to a former Priest and her second mid-life marriage to Frank Perdue, head of a chicken company that now sells its products in 114 countries. I Didn t Bargain for This is a easy read about Mitzi s life as the daughter of one of America s greatest entrepreneurs and how she chose a life of work and dedication to public causes as an alternative to the celebrity globe-trotting life, she could have pursued. This book is a reminder that the American Dream lives on and public service is a valued American tradition. I Didn t Bargain for This is published by R.J. Myers Publishing and Consulting Company, Washington, D.C.
