Thirty years ago, this magisterial biography became a bestseller and won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. The first of Edmund Morris' three Theodore Roosevelt bios covers the Rough Rider president's life from his 1858 birth to his November 1901 election as president. Now recognized as a classic, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt reveals its subject as a man shaped by great events and torn by personal tragedies (his first wife and mother died on the same day.) Definitely worth recommending.
