it was amazing
Read in March, 2009

Once I had read River of Doubt about Teddy Roosevelt, I felt like I needed to learn more about how he became who he became. The character and personality of Roosevelt's influential father, now almost forgotten by society at large, almost looms larger than Roosevelt himself in this book. He takes such a prominent place not because the book focuses on him, but because once you learn about him, you see him in everything else Teddy Roosevelt decides to do with his life.

I love this book partly because of how well it shows how all good things, any ascent or rising up, is owed in large measure to the most influential of men and women we call parents and siblings and family.

Well written, interesting, and inspiring.
