Description
In this concluding volume of the trilogy that began with the Pulitzer Prize winner The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt (and which itself was deemed "one of the best biographies in modern literature" by New York's City Journal), the aging Teddy Roosevelt is disenchanted with his handpicked successor William Howard Taft, and makes an unsuccessful bid to recapture the presidency. Leaving office in 1909, the still-vigorous ex-president busies himself with hunting, traveling, writing, and serving as a freewheeling ambassador, yet Roosevelt will contend with the coming of World War I, the death of a son, and the inevitable loss of his own powers in this final decade.

"Reading Edmund Morris on Theodore Roosevelt is like listening to Yo-Yo Ma play Bach: you know from the first note you're in inspired hands."The Washingtonian

"Mr. Morris has addressed the toughest and most frustrating part of Roosevelt's life with the same care and precision that he brought to the two earlier installments. And if this story of a lifetime is his own life's work, he has reason to be immensely proud."NYTimes
