    The face of Theodore Roosevelt, along with that of three other American presidents, adorns the granite facade of a mountain in South Dakota. In the Mt. Rushmore National Park, the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln have been carved for posterity. The first is the president that led the Colonies in their struggle for independence, the second, the president that wrote the United States Constitution, and the last one kept the country together after The face of Theodore Roosevelt, along with that of three other American presidents, adorns the granite facade of a mountain in South Dakota. In the Mt. Rushmore National Park, the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln have been carved for posterity. The first is the president that led the Colonies in their struggle for independence, the second, the president that wrote the United States Constitution, and the last one kept the country together after a bitter civil war. Why would Roosevelt deserve a spot in that illustrious company? The answer is simple, during his time as the 26th President of the United States; he enacted bills and laws that created National Parks and the National Park Service. This is by no means his only or even his greatest, accomplishment. Thanks to his efforts, United States Army engineers created the Panama Canal, dissecting the isthmus of Panama, splitting two continents, joining two oceans, and making travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans infinitely easier. Of all the US presidents, Roosevelt is the most adventurous and interesting. He, and his First Cavalry Regiment, “The Roughriders,” and their charge up San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War will forever be embedded in the annals of American history. His North and South American policy of speaking softly and carrying a big stick, to his dispatching the White Fleet on a world tour, announced to the world that the United States was a power to be reckoned with. His contributions, both great and small, go on and on. This short biography of his life just highlights a few of his adventures, talents, and accomplishments. It serves well as an aperitif to the life of a very gifted, interesting, and universal man. I am sure many will enjoy this, and other books, in this series.

    A good introduction to one of America's giants As always, this is another good introduction for newcomers to American history and can also be enjoyed by those who are already aficionados of this time period. TR remains one of America's most revered presidents and for good reason. Beyond his anti trust laws and military record, there's also his vision and idealism which separates him from most of his contemporaries. He was a believer in his country and sought to inspire his fellow country men thro A good introduction to one of America's giants As always, this is another good introduction for newcomers to American history and can also be enjoyed by those who are already aficionados of this time period. TR remains one of America's most revered presidents and for good reason. Beyond his anti trust laws and military record, there's also his vision and idealism which separates him from most of his contemporaries. He was a believer in his country and sought to inspire his fellow country men through his example so they could live by those same values. As with every historical figure he is not without his flaws. This mini biography does a good job listing these without being overly too critical, reminding the reader that the past cannot be changed, only studied. Teddy Roosevelt belonged to a bygone era. He was much a product of his time as anyone else, however, he also demonstrated an uncanny ability to look beyond the confines of his era because of his patriotic vision. Yet, in the end, it is time itself that proved to be Teddy's worst enemy as much of what he did -and still wanted to do- was undermined by human greed and corruption. The two things he fought against were seeded in his party and allowed to grow, largely in part due to (in his view) his professor's indolent nature.

    Excellent Book! Thoroughly enjoyed reading about the life and times of Theodore Roosevelt. This Book does an impressive job at bringing to light some of the lesser known aspects of this great man's life. Excellent Book!

    This is one of the quite good Hourly History series running out of America. They have written one for all the American presidents I think. Well I started reading some of them early on this year. This is Teddy Roosevelt, or rather Teedie as he was known, teddy didn't come along until later when he had been on a hunting expedition to Africa and he hadn't shot anything, so the hunters found an old black wounded bear and tied it to a tree for him to kill. He refused and walked away. The hunters promp This is one of the quite good Hourly History series running out of America. They have written one for all the American presidents I think.

He refused and walked away. The hunters promptly shot it anyway. So he earned his nickname by that one deed. It turns out that he wasn't a bad president, he was the youngest and was something of an Action Man. He built the Panama Canal and won a Nobel Prize. Oh and he served twice. I do like this Hourly Histories, they have some good books and they are free on kindle!

    I thought this short biography was quite informative. I was not aware that his first wife died so young and he was so distraught. I thought the information about his second wife and all their children was interesting. Roosevelt was quite the character, it sounds like, from "The Rough Riders" to being awarded the Medal of Honor after his death (the only president ever to have received one) to his political ups and downs to his big game hunting and then his very extensive exploration of the Amazon I thought this short biography was quite informative.

All this from one person? He lived an incredible life.

    Theodore Roosevelt is no "Teddy Bear" I believe President Theodore Roosevelt is one of our greatest presidents in American history. For his leadership, his strong demeanor, his charisma and his family values... he kept this nation strong and positioned to become a world power. Things that we have now come directly from his influence or formations he started 100+ years ago. Great read for this extraordinary American.

    Unlike some others in the One Hour History series, this seems to hit the highlights of the man's life. To keep it short means it only touched on details but, surprisingly, President Theodore Ro's motivations and national beliefs are told about also. If you want to see if reading some of his much larger biographies might interest you this is a very solid start.

    Really good concise history Yeah a renaissance man in the history of the times. I knew about the great White Fleet thrusting America's navy onto the global stage. But "Remember the Maine", fighting the Spanish navy mostly had them surrendering and scuttling their ships. I remember hearing black soldiers fighting and not getting credited as with the Rough Riders. Really good concise history Yeah a renaissance man in the history of the times.

    Like all of the Hourly History books that I've read it, it is a good concise biography of Roosevelt's life and accomplishments. A good book if you're just looking to learn the facts and highlights about the character.

    A Cracking Take on an American Renaissance Man Despite its brevity, it's a cracking good account of Roosevelt's extraordinary life. An inspiration worthy of better attention in this generation.

    A Legend in His Own Time Teddy Roosevelt was a very diversified and amazing man his entire life. He did so much for the average American. He was born wealthy but he did not condone the unfair practices that allowed a handful of greedy men to become extremely rich by exploiting workers. He took measures to stop the rich from controlling the destiny of America. He also expected Americans to relinquish loyalty to their old country and be Americans only. I even learned a few things that I did not kno A Legend in His Own Time Teddy Roosevelt was a very diversified and amazing man his entire life. He did so much for the average American.

    Theodor Rosevelt: A man before his time This is another wonderful book in the hourly history series. As with the book on Abraham Lincoln, this book is full of information and yet easy to read and informative. Each chapter begins with a short quote from Rosevelt himself, and then gives us a glimpse into his life and what made him the man he was. If you are looking for an all inclusive but short biography of one of our greatest Presidents, here is your book.
