Horrific. This was heavily subsidized by the Tourism Board of North Dakota (no joke) and the first 10-minutes of footage show the Dakota Badlands and talk about their majesty, without even mentioning T.R. The next several scenes show a modern actor, in period (cowboy) clothing, from the back, walking through fields with electronic noise and sepia-toned to make it look old. The lackluster, oddly-inflected, voice-enhances rather than dissipates the crushing dullness.

Not much information here about the larger than life persona of Teddy Roosevelt--which is a shame, because he's a great historic figure with a of meat for the biographer.

This film doesn't give good service to T.R. and I suspect the Dakota Badlands suffer as well. I wish I could give it less than one-star.

It's a pretty short doc and short of a lot of details. However, it's one more piece of the puzzle in understanding one of the most successful and influential presidents of the 20th century. His legacy includes lasting family values and happy lives for the nation's workers. He's sculpted into Mount Rushmore with the founding fathers for a reason and it's great to learn why. I should mention that I watched it free of charge with my prime membership. If I had paid for it, the review would be more about how it's not worth the price.

i'm not sure what i expected with this video, but something more well rounded. the piece is about the time roosevelt spent in the badlands and how it effected him as a man, how much he seemed to love it and how it was important for him to create these wonderful nature preserves and parks we have now - which is great, but this idea is repeated over and over. if you were to edit this down so the idea was expressed only once, you'd have a piece that was only a few minutes long. and the way that roosevelt's time is described in such detail, you would think that he spent years there, only to be told that it was only a scant few months. it is telling to see who put the money up for this production.

Very interesting locally produced program that expands on what's commonly presented about TR's time on the range in North Dakota. I really enjoyed the additional details and local flavor. Is it a bit booster-ish about North Dakota? Yes, but not sickeningly so. I didn't see the obvious local pride of place as a defect. Clearly some other reviewers did.

This is an interesting piece about Teddy Roosevelt and North Dakota. I did not know that his ranching experience in North Dakota really made him into a man!!!! I can visualize this green horn from New York stepping off the train in Medora, Western North Dakota to look at his new ranch. The real cowboys must of broke into laughter when he waltzed into the Medora bar. I can see them making bets on how long this Eastern will make it in the real West. His strong character was really given a chance to be tested and blossum. Even if you don't have an interest in Teddy, you really should see this video and you will have a better understanding and respect for our future President.

It's a decent video, but whoever did the voices was the worst. I've literally never heard a "scottish" accent that sounded like a cross between stereotypical American Indian, South African, and a bad Russian.

Insipid and stupid. Information is repeated over and over again. I felt like I was in a junior high history class on the day the teacher of out and a sub pulled this rag out of the rusty cabinet. Don't waste your time.

I gotta tell ya... this is just an ok piece of work, at best. Lots of photos... some background information... it's exactly like someone sitting and reading a book to us with photos and some background music, etc. Yawwwwnnnn! Just imagine... a piece about this great man and great President being boring... it would seem impossible, but these guys got it done!ZZZZZZZZ
