Kamala's way : an American life

Morain, Dan (author.).

Summary

Summary: There's very little that's conventional about Kamala Harris, yet her personal story also represents the best of America. Morain introduces us to the fast-rising prosecutor, who became the first Black female attorney general in California history. He shows us that Harris is a shrewd strategist, a risk-taker who ran for the United States Senate, embraced Barack Obama's candidacy when he was just a long shot, and cares for her both her personal and political families while doing things her own way. -- adapted from jacket
