by George Grant
Before his fiftieth birthday, Teddy Roosevelt had served as a state legislator, Under-Secretary of the Navy, Police Commissioner of New York City, Governor of New York, and two terms as Vice President and then President of the United States. In addition, he was a war hero. He also had run a cattle ranch out west, had worked as a journalist and editor, conducted scientific expeditions on four continents, raised five children, and enjoyed a life-long romance with his wife. No wonder he continues to capture our imaginations as he did the loyalty and respect of his own time.
In this thought-provoking book, George Grant explores the life and character of one of the most remarkable men of the twentieth century. The qualities that made him such an extraordinary leader are examined, as are the exploits that made him so famous. Also highlighted are the spiritual values and faith that he affirmed with such vigor as he walked the world stage with an impact generated by few men in his time.
