Besides being a politician, he was also a cowboy, a soldier, a historian, an intrepid explorer, and an unsurpassed environmentalist, all in all perhaps the most accomplished chief executive in our nation's history. Historian Aida D. Donald masterfully chronicles the life of this first modern president.
"Aida D. Donald's elegant and affectionate portrait of Theodore Roosevelt is less a biography than a masterful essay on idealism and power....[A] beautifully written and deeply intelligent book."-Alan Brinkley, Columbia University
