Description
Theodore Roosevelt was a prolific writer, having penned enough for 20 volumes of collected works and written, it's estimated, more than 150,000 letters. From this ample source material, Daniel Ruddy has extracted Roosevelt's unique view of American history from the Revolution to the beginning of the 20th century, as well as his frequently harsh verdicts of such presidential predecessors as Andrew Jackson ("not more than half civilized") and William McKinley ("no more backbone than a chocolate éclair"). More than an anthologist, though, Ruddy is an adept editor, seamlessly stitching together passages from myriad sources to create a cohesive, informative, and entertaining read.

"Here is Theodore Roosevelt: a bona fide intellectual, diplomat, and politician without peer, coming at us like a great roaring steam train from the past. Daniel Ruddy has nimbly leaped aboard…. His own scholarship in assembling the text is formidable."—Edmund Morris
