Item description for If I Were a Carpenter: Twenty Years of Habitat for Humanity by Frye Gaillard...
Begun in 1965 by Millard Fuller, a wealthy Alabama businessman, Habitat for Humanity has become one of America's greatest success stories. In the mid-1980s, former president Jimmy Carter became an active member of Habitat, leading armies of volunteers on house-building blitzes.
