A Lifetime of Adventure
Explorer, warrior, politician, and diplomat, Theodore Roosevelt was America's most colorful President.
Biographer John Garraty reveals the hardships that Teddy Roosevelt faced over the course of his life and how he found renewal in the outdoors, whether capturing horse thieves in the West, hunting lions in Africa, or as a Rough Rider charging up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War.
Learn how the man who spoke softly and carried a big stick managed to pack so much useful work and high-spirited fun into a relatively short life. The first conservationist President, a dogged trustbuster, and a creative diplomat who received the Nobel Peace Prize, Roosevelt changed the course of the country's history using his huge personality and his boundless energy.
