Description
(Winner of a 1980 Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award) From a prologue portraying Theodore Roosevelt at the apex of his international prestige—on New Year's Day 1907, after winning the Nobel Peace Prize, when he threw open the doors of the White House to the American people—Edmund Morris in effect gives us the biography of seven men. Roosevelt was a naturalist, a writer, a lover, a hunter, a ranchman, a soldier, and a politician, all of whom merged at age 42 to become the youngest U.S. President in our history. "It was as if he were subconsciously aware that he was a man of many selves," writes Morris, "and set about developing each one in turn, knowing that one day he would be President of all the people." Named one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time by the Modern Library, Morris's debut biography became the first volume in his peerless trilogy on the life of our 26th president, following the appearance of Theodore Rex in 2001 (winning the Los Angeles Times Book Award for Biography) and Colonel Roosevelt in 2010, which New York's City Journal deemed "one of the best biographies in modern literature."

"A sweeping narrative of the outward man and a shrewd examination of his character.... It is one of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment."—NYTBR
