Inhaltsangabe

The American century opened with the election of that quintessentially American adventurer, Theodore Roosevelt. Louis Auchincloss' biography introduces us to the man behind the many myths of Theodore Roosevelt. From his early involvement in the politics of New York City and then New York State, we trace his celebrated military career and finally his ascent to the national political stage.

Caricatured through history as the "bull moose," Roosevelt was in fact a man of extraordinary discipline whose refined and literate tastes actually helped spawn his fascination with the rough-and-ready worlds of war and wilderness. Auchincloss briskly recounts the significant contributions of Roosevelt's career and administration.

Kritikerstimmen

"[Auchincloss] paints a vivid portrait and almost treats the president as a quirky character in one of his own novels of upper-class America...It is a compelling, novelistic approach to history." ( Publishers Weekly)
"A master craftsman's rendering of a character who needs no embellishment." ( Kirkus Reviews)
