Chapters include: A Cougar Hunt on the Rim of the Grand Canyon, Across the Navajo Desert, The Hopi Snake-Dance, The Ranchland of Argentina and Southern Brazil, A Chilean Rondeo, Across the Andes and Northern Paragonia, Wild Hunting Companions, Primitive Man, Books for Holidays in the Open, Bird Reserves at the Mouth of the Mississippi, and A Curious Experience. According to Wikipedia: "Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919) was the 26th President of the United States (1901–1909). He is noted for his energetic personality, range of interests and achievements, leadership of the Progressive Movement, and his "cowboy" image and robust masculinity. He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the short-lived Progressive ("Bull Moose") Party of 1912. Before becoming President, he held offices at the municipal, state, and federal level of government. Roosevelt's achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician."

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.
