While this a readable OCR and the writing itself is not bad (T. Roosevelt's journal-type style), I had more of a problem with the mores and customs of the times. Treatment of animals was less than I cared for but understandable given the times. I was reading along, enjoying the scenery and camping descriptions and got to page 31 where Roosevelt wrote of the Navajo on their reservation and how they were so blessed in their treatment and education by first the Spanish Conquistadores, then by the "white settlers". His phrasing made it sound as if he felt the Navajo had boundless good fortune in being conquered the way that they had been. He stated that the Navajo should be admired for their ability to make a living in their harsh desert environs but that they needed to continu to be kept on the reservation, basically for their own good and the safety of whites. This was the end of my enjoyment as well as the end of my reading.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
