Overview

What do you get when you combine an obsessive reader and writer, a "wild and wooly" adventurer, an astute naturalist, and an ironclad political will? Teddy Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States: a naturalist, a biographer, a hunter and a Nobel Prize winner-among other things. Adventure Classics series editor Anthony Brandt focuses on Roosevelt's robust and adventurous spirit and treats the reader to an engaging assortment of Roosevelt's far-flung adventures across the American West, Africa, and South America.

Theodore Roosevelt was part Francis Parkman, part Lowell Thomas, and one hundred percent spirit of America and master of the printed page. The Adventures of Theodore Roosevelt collects self-contained excerpts from some of his greatest works, including such revealing memoirs as The Rough Riders, the Autobiography, and Through the Brazilian Wilderness, in an effort to capture the many aspects of a great American who was indeed larger than life and his own best "Boswell."

In addition to an introduction that outlines the adventurous aspects of Roosevelt's life, each selection includes a brief introduction by Anthony Brandt that explains the necessary context for each reading. Woven together in this exciting narrative the selections form a chronological account of Roosevelt's lifetime of adventures.
