Theodore Roosevelt stands out as one of the most exceptional leaders in American history. He was a devoted husband and father, a politician, a soldier, a war hero, a journalsit, an editor, a cattle rancher, a scientist, an historian, a writer, an athlete, a hunter, and a diplomat. While the list of his exploits seems imposing, it was his passionate commitment to what he believed was right and good and true that was dynamically compelling -- even to those who opposed him. In this thought provoking look at his leadership in action, we see why he not only earned the respect and admiration of his contemporaries, but why, even today, he continues to capture our imagination.
This volume presents the life of Teddy Roosevelt, adventurer, journalist, rancher, legislator, governor, vice president and president of the United States, and an inspiration to people of his own time and of ours. This look at his life and character marks him as one of the most remarkable men of the 20th century.
