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.”

I purchased this book for my husband. He has enjoyed reading it; and has found it very interesting and informative. If offers insights into his brilliance and sometimes caustic opinions, some of which were not known to him prior to receiving this gift. I believe it would make a great gift for anyone with an interest in one of the most "larger-than-life", vibrant President to ever hold office.
