I really enjoyed this. I had already read, tr, the last romantic and mornings on horseback, so I wasn't sure how much more it could offer, but it really delivers. I've seen criticism of the details in the hunting scenes and, as an animal lover, I sympathize. It is, however, an important part of who Roosevelt was and helped lead to his tremendous contributions to conservation, so I say, grin and bear it, or skip them if you must. All in all, an unforgettable portrait of a remarkable man

loved it- I prefer bio's that reproduce letters and journals, so you can really get a feel of how the person thought and what others at the time felt towards them
this was such a bio-a really enjoyable read

This is the second book in Morris' trilogy on Roosevelt's life. I read the first, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, a few years ago and rated it 4.5 stars. This one didn't reach that height for me. The impressive research, attention to detail, and smooth writing are all the same, but as this volume dealt with Roosevelt's time as President, there was a lot of information I couldn't keep straight about various bills, Executive Orders, politicians, etc. Still, Morris paints a vivid portrait of T.R. as a transformative figure not only for his party but for the nation. And I very much enjoyed the glimpses into his private life and family.

I look forward to reading the final volume, following T.R. post-Presidential years, later this year.
