Publisher's Description

Theodore Roosevelt’s bestselling memoir chronicling the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry and its victory at San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War.
 
Yearning to join the fight for Cuban independence in the Spanish–American War, Theodore Roosevelt and Col. Leonard Wood formed the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry. They enlisted a motley crew from all walks of life, from cowboys and frontiersmen to Ivy League graduates. These 1,250 men became known as the Rough Riders. After training in San Antonio, Texas, they set out for the tropical jungles of Cuba. As they grappled with hunger, malaria, and occasional defeat, their many battles with the Spanish Army culminated in the death-defying charge to victory at San Juan Hill.
 
Through it all, Roosevelt kept a pocket diary in which he made daily entries about his experiences and the men who fought beside him. Imbued with his trademark vigor and certainty of purpose, Roosevelt’s firsthand account of this historic campaign paints a vivid picture of the rugged, independent spirit that came to define American heroism.

Author Bio

Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (1858–1919) was the governor of New York before becoming the vice president of the United States. At age forty-two, Roosevelt became the youngest man to assume the US presidency after President William McKinley was assassinated in 1901. Beloved by the masses, Roosevelt fought for citizen fairness, railroad regulations, and national park conservation. In 1906, Roosevelt received the Nobel Peace Prize for his successful efforts to end the Russo-Japanese War. Besides his active career in politics, Roosevelt was an avid writer, publishing over ninety pieces in his lifetime, including Theodore Roosevelt: An Autobiography, TheNaval War of 1812, and Rough Riders.
