I found that this book was quite interesting and educational. I have read some of the comments and I won't pretend that I can vouch for it being completely accurate but the author did give a complete accounting on his sources. It may contain what his opinion is for the most part but I enjoyed this read and look forward to reading more of the books in this four part series.

I'm reading an original printing that belonged to my Dad, having by chance learned what a multifaceted character T. Roosevelt was. So far it's an interesting read but quite difficult, as his views on aboriginal peoples are horrendous to modern sensibilities.

Capital stuff, wonderful narrative history, full of vigour and life and action, just as we would expect from that "human locomotive", as someone once called TR.
