Autobiography of Theodore Roosevelt
Feb 07, 2018
I wasn't sure I would ever finish this. Teddy really needed a editor. One hundred word sentences tend to be hard to follow. Despite the wordy style the content was quite interesting, although, except for some childhood memories, it was devoid of family remembrances. He gave great descriptions of cattle drives in North Dakota, but said nothing about the family tragedies that drove him out there. His military and political careers are covered in great detail and, considering today's political mess, you can appreciate his integrity, honesty and tenacity in getting laws passed that, for the most part, helped the working man and woman, and kept big business from destroying the environment. I think you probably need to be a real fan of his to patiently wade through this book, but you will certainly learn a lot about a very special man.
