Was very satisfied with the item I received. Learned a great deal more about Theodore Roosevelt than I knew before. Would definitely suggest this book to someone who has an interest in Scouting or is presently involved with Scouting.

This is a great book for the whole family. The book is definitely easy reading for everyone to enjoy. I love the way it ties Roosevelt's life, passion for scouting and his strong moral compass into a fun and educational guide. Absolutely read and share this book if you are in scouts or considering the program for your kids. I would highly recommend this book to everyone from scouts to corporate America.

If you are a person who likes to read inspirational stories, this book is for you. I learned more about Teddy Roosevelt in this book than in all the history lessons I ever had. If you are a leader and need a resource for moving lessons, you will find this book valuable. If you want to be inspired to be a better person, you will enjoy and treasure this book.
I highly recommend this book.

This quick read outlines the changes of the USA as it enters the 20th century, the
Industrial Revolution moves on and how key Americans influenced the formation of the Boy Scouts of America in 1910. Highlights a different side of President Roosevelt as history portrays.

President Roosevelt was one of BSA's biggest supporters in the early years and he never shyed away from saying so. He knew and appreciated the efforts being made to build fine young boys into strong young men of good character who will become great American citizens. He was an advocate of the great outdoors and a conservationist. We Scouters should give thanks to President Roosevelt for starting the National Parks system that we enjoy with our Scouts today.
