A wonderful read about one of our great USA presidents, who certainly did earn to have his face on Mount Rushmoore among the others there =) ( )

Teddy Roosevelt set the agenda for twentieth-century America. After assuming the presidency because of an assassination (McKinley), Roosevelt provided a successful progressive trajectory for the coming century. Because of him, America prospered and prospers still.

He impacted just about every major area with his touch. He helped start the area of land conservation. He introduced legislation to improve transportation by ending the railway trust. In foreign policy, he mediated negotiations to end the Russian-Japanese War and won a Nobel Peace Prize for it. He was called the greatest American president since Abraham Lincoln. Indeed, in terms of impact of twentieth-century presidents, he shares company with only Ronald Reagan and his cousin Frankline Roosevelt.

As a part of a biographical trilogy, Morris tells the tale of his presidency from when Roosevelt found out he was president (in a well-told and interesting introductory chapter) all the way to Roosevelt’s departure from the White House after handing the reigns to Taft. Roosevelt’s gregarious personality is difficult to capture because of its outsized strength; however, Morris seems equal to the task and often quotes TR to provide vivid and intimate access to the genius.

Are you interested in how America transitioned from a gilded age of nineteenth century sputtering to the bustling giant that it is today? You have to go through the masterful Teddy Roosevelt. Do you want to learn about him? If you do, you have to go through his masterful biographer Edmund Morris. Do you want to master his rise? Read the entire masterful trilogy.

This was really well written. I'm coming to truly appreciate Roosevelt as a master politician and as someone who truly enjoyed life to the fullest. He was definitely a different breed of Republican than what we see today. (He initiated some of the first labor laws, set natural resources above profit and he was the first President to dine with a man of color in the White House. That last decision almost cost him his second term.) ( )
