“The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt”

When this book first came out, the Miami Herald observed that any writer would envy this towering achievement. Absolutely true! This is a riveting, colorful tale of one of America’s most larger-than-life heroes. Every chapter is filled with the electric force of Roosevelt’s personality, bravura, and galactic curiosity and ambition. It’s nearly 800 pages long (taking the reader only up to the moment when TR learns he’s about to move into the White House), and there’s not a boring paragraph to be found throughout. The research is impeccable and Edmund Morris also has a vivid, poetic style which takes us back to a creative era when authors and historians used language to powerful effect.
