A wonderful conclusion to the award-winning trilogy. The biography starts after Roosevelt has left the White House, and follows him until his death
Politics and policy took front and center in Theodore Rex by Edmund Morris, which was interesting, but Mr. Roosevelt’s life to a second seat
This was a fascinating book, and certainly intensively researched. Mr. Morris’ narrative is very readable, it is obvious he is fascinated Mr. Roosevelt
Teddy Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, was a self-proclaimed “book lover” throughout his life. His library and home are filled with books
Edmund Morris (27 May 1940 – 24 May 2019) was an American Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, known for his biographies of Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan
The author states that this part of Roosevelt’s life is often glossed over by biographers and historians, they don’t see it as very important. As well all know, however, it is the small moments, the unassuming ones which catch us off guard that sometimes create the deepest impact
Even if you don’t have a passion for the outdoors, or not a fan of America’s National Parks this book will certainly entertain you. It is an easy read with excellent pictures from the old and recent days.
Enemies: A History of the FBI by Tim Weiner is a fascinating and well researched book giving an excellent treatment of what basically amounts to domestic spying
The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey by Candice Millard tells of the extraordinary expedition
Yesterday I posted about the book Eleanor Roosevelt’s Life of Soul Searching and Self Discovery by Ann Atkins (my thoughts) which is the first in the “Flash History” series. Mrs. Roosevelt has always been a fascinating historical figure and I was happy to learn more about her.
