I really enjoyed this. I had already read, tr, the last romantic and mornings on horseback, so I wasn't sure how much more it could offer, but it really delivers. I've seen criticism of the details in the hunting scenes and, as an animal lover, I sympathize. It is, however, an important part of who Roosevelt was and helped lead to his tremendous contributions to conservation, so I say, grin and bear it, or skip them if you must. All in all, an unforgettable portrait of a remarkable man ( )

Very good introduction to the life of our 26th president. This first volume of three will take you right up to the point of the death of William McKinley. ( )

This is one of the great biographies of all time, certainly the greatest I have ever read. Thus it is also the greatest presidential biography I have ever read, and I've read nearly thirty such volumes. This is the first volume of Edmund Morris's three-volume biography of Theodore Roosevelt, covering the years from his birth to the moment his presidency began. Never have I read such a thoroughly researched, minutely detailed, yet stirring and compelling biography. This is a book that seems to overlook nothing, yet it propels the reader like a great novel. It is a masterful, unforgettable achievement, one which leaves me hungry for the second and third volumes. ( )

So, TR is a complicated fellow. There are ample reasons to like and dislike young TR. Reading this gives you that uneasy feeling you get from seeing the sausage-esque underbelly of particular endeavors.

Regardless of how you feel about the first President Roosevelt--before or after reading this--it's a great biography and well-researched. I'm looking forward to diving into volume 2. ( )

The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris is a biography of the 26th President of the United States. This is the first book of a trilogy, is also considered to be the authoritative biography of the President.

many books about him.

I’ve been looking to read Edmund Morris’ three-part biography for several years. Actually, I was attempting to read the President’s biographies in order but decided that I might as well read The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt after visiting the President’s home, Sagamore Hill, this summer.

This was a fascinating book, and certainly intensively researched. Mr. Morris’ narrative is very readable, it is obvious he is fascinated, as well as amused by Mr. Roosevelt. Reading the book, one can even understand how Roosevelt talked.

The whole early life of this man was fascinating. From his Harvard education to his time spent on the Dakotas. Especially fascinating, as I assumed it would be, was his time with the Rough Riders. A man with excellent memory, he memorized all the men, almost a thousand. He shook the hand of each and every one of them, with tears in his eyes, when the outfit was disbanded.
And they were welcomed at the White House anytime, no appointment necessary.

The book really sets up the man we know as President, his morals, ambitions, as well as strong personality. Using the famous quote of Chauncey Depew, a Republican politician, that “Teddy wants to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral.” The author goes ahead and proves that saying to be true.

Furthermore, I was encouraged to learn that Roosevelt, a learned man, was not afraid to change his mind when presented with new facts . However, most of all he admired individual achievements which shaped his early life, and later on his policies.

The book follows Teddy Roosevelt from his birth to 1901. The story ends after President McKinley died; Vice President Roosevelt found himself to be President Roosevelt. I certainly cannot wait to read the rest of the trilogy. ( )
