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.
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.
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.
