Overview

“A splendid piece of work.”
— Edmund Morris

In a unique project, author Daniel Ruddy has carefully extracted Teddy Roosevelt’s most relevant and telling comments—from letters, books, speeches, and other sources—and organized them to form a fairly full, always colorful, and highly opinionated history of the United States up to 1919 (the year TR died). With a preface by Theodore Rex author Edmund Morris.

Editorial Reviews

Edmund Morris
I have nothing but admiration for a young historian’s ingenuity in putting together what is, in a sense, a Rooseveltian apologia pro vita sua, with not one word of other argument interpolated...A splendid piece of work.
Thomas Fleming
This is a book that everyone even faintly interested in American history will read with amazement and delight. It is nothing less than an historical experience, a journey into our past in the company of a unique and often startling time-traveller.
Douglas Brinkley
“Daniel Ruddy’s Theodore Roosevelt’s History of the United States is a marvelous omnibus showcasing our twenty-sixth president’s flashy wit, statesman-like grace, and original thinking. A real gift to the world.”
