    Bully! This is good stuff!

    Growing up on a North Dakota cattle ranch, I was weaned on stories of Theodore Roosevelt's ranching days in the rugged Badlands. I did not know the half of it! This is a great, fast-paced book packed with interesting details that really flesh out the story. I could see the painted canyons and buttes, smell the sweet prairie grass, and hear the hiss of wind-driven snow against the windows of the Elk Horn ranchhouse as the author weaves a remarkable story, all the more remarkable because it is all true. A bar room brawl, cattle roundups, a bison hunt, a search for thieves on the run, and a dust-up with an eccentric aristocratic Frenchman intent on building a cattle empire. All this and TR still had time to read War and Peace in two weeks...in French. This book could be made into a movie.

    The most detailed book of Roosevelt's experiences in the Dakota

    The most detailed book of Roosevelt's experiences in the Dakota Bandlands. Just an absolute joy to read and see how this period in TR's life shaped him for the years ahead. I have always been fascinated by this time in his life and most bios on TR, spend a chapter and move on, never really giving me a feel for the land and the time TR spent in the Dakotas. Happily, this book fills that need very nicely and is informative and interesting. TR would approve.
