And She Danced For The King - Memoirs of a Rockette (Paperback)
And She Danced For The King: Memoirs of a Rockette covers the 10-year career of Peggy Morrison, a professional dancer in the 1930s. It tells the story of an ordinary, but driven young woman who followed her dream and 'made it' in show business without compromising her family's values. Taken largely from letters written to her family throughout her career, the book chronicles a fascinating and unique time in the entertainment industry, the ten years preceding World War II. Peggy Morrison was an actual participant in many intriguing events that took place in the 1930s. She survived the depression, lived and worked in Paris when World War II was erupting, and narrowly missed being summoned by Hitler to Berlin. Written by Ro Trent Vaselaar, the niece of Peg Morrison Macherey, Vaselaar began this project as a way to preserve the stories for her family, but quickly realized that it was a story worth sharing.
