‘Magnificent... a sweeping narrative of the outward man and a shrewd examination of his character... It is one of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment. There should be a queue awaiting the next volume.’ W.A. Swanberg, The New York Times Book Review

‘Theodore Roosevelt, in this meticulously researched and beautifully written biography, has a claim on being the most interesting man ever to be President of this country.’ Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times Book Review

‘Spectacles glittering, teeth and temper flashing, high-pitched voice rasping and crackling, roosevelt surges out of these pages with the force of a physical presence.’ The Atlantic Monthly

‘Morris’s book is beautifully written as well as thoroughly scholarly – clearly a masterpiece of American biography... Hundreds of thousands wil soon be reading thsi book... and will look forward, as I do, to Morris’s second volume.’ Kenneth S. Davis, Worcester Sunday Telegram

‘A classic... Entertaining and colourful, powerful and fascinating.’ Chicago Tribune

Reseña del editor:

The first volume of Edmund Morris’s biography of Theodore Roosevelt won the Pulitzer Prize. This second volume covers Roosevelt’s years as American President.

Theodore Roosevelt was one of the most vibrant presidents of the USA. A naturalist, adventurer, soldier and politician,Theodore Roosevelt became president in 1901, when he was not quite forty-three – the youngest President in the Nation’s history. He built himself from a frail, asthmatic boy to become one of the most charismatic Presidents in history.

Responsible for radical reform, and for ensuring the construction of the Panama Canal, Roosevelt steered the US more actively into world politics, crusaded tirelessly for conservation – adding enormously to the national forests in the West.

This is the long-awaited second volume to Morris’s prizewinning first volume. Described by its Times reviewer as ‘the best biography I’ve ever read... The writing is so vivid, the language so direct.’
