Whether you admire him or not, Roosevelt remains a thoroughly fascinating subject, a brilliant man with widely varied interests and talents who lived what can only be termed an extraordinary life. The fact that he lived during a time of rapid and dramatic change throughout much of the world only adds further texture to his story.
Morris' books are deeply interesting, meticulously researched and best of all, eminently readable - scholarly works made accessible to the non-scholar through the almost novel-like approach Morris has taken.
Briefly, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt (1979) covers TR's life from his childhood through the death of President McKinley which launched TR into the presidency, (for a more complete understanding of these years, pair this one with David McCullough's wonderful Mornings on Horseback), Theodore Rex (2001) covers his presidency and Colonel Roosevelt (2010) his post-presidential years.
While I read them, I rarely review biographies - I'm usually more than content to leave that to scholars who can voice opinions on a book's overall worth with far more insight than I can.Read more ›
bigger than life, yet the author captures his spirit and our attention. His prose are robust, and his story telling is a remarkable experience.
