Format: Hardcover
Beginning with the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and followed by Theodore Rex and Colonel Roosevelt, this trilogy is Edmund Morris's epic biography of our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt.

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.

Edmund Morris reminds me a lot of Robert Caro (author of The Power Broker and the biography of LBJ). His research has been excellent (which takes much time and requires us to wait for following volumes) and his treatment of TR is very objective. If you've read "Theodore Roosevelt: A Life" by Nathan Miller or "Morning's on Horseback" by David McCullough, and are fascinated with TR's incredible will to overcome his serious health issues, maximize his performance in whatever he attempts and achieve personal success through leadership -- then there are many additional details of this man's journey in this trilogy. Three volumes may be a bit much for many -- in which case you should start with one of the two biographies I mentioned. But, the surprise in the three volumes is that, like Caro, Morris has an engrossing way of writing which, if you didn't know better, you might think you were reading a novel rather than biography.

There are two aspects to these books. First, the quality of the books. They are beautiful. We will keep these on our bookshelves as they are gorgeous. Next, the quality of the writing. This is a set of books written for an adult. This is not a set for a junior high student or even a high school student unless that student has a scholarly attitude. These books delve into his life and the lives of the people surrounding him like nothing else I've read. The description of a previous enemy weeping at Roosevelt's funeral had me in tears.

I bought these for my husband for Christmas. He can't put them down already on the second book. Says they are very well written and keep you interest as some history books can't.

There's a lot of material here, but it is well worth the time it takes to complete the books. TR was a remarkable individual...
bigger than life, yet the author captures his spirit and our attention. His prose are robust, and his story telling is a remarkable experience.

If you are Theodore Roosevelt fan, then this trilogy is for you. It's definitely one of those books that take awhile to get through, but as a history buff, I can appreciate the research put into such a book. A must read for all Teddy fans!
