Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available here in trade paperback, this lavishly illustrated reprint of Theodore Roosevelt's 1899 memoir of the Spanish-American War will thrill serious historians, American history buffs, and Roosevelt enthusiasts alike. The vivid prose, reprinted as it originally appeared in serial installments in Scribner's Magazine, remains as exciting and evocative as ever. In addition to the original text, this oversized and expanded volume includes:

-- A lengthy prologue describing Roosevelt's life and times

-- More than 150 period photographs and illustrations, some never before published and many in full color

-- Sidebars highlighting aspects of America's first imperial war, including the mysterious explosion of the battleship Maine, the irresponsible reportage of yellow journalists the contributions of black soldiers to a country still ruled by Jim Crow, and portions of a recently discovered Rough Rider diary

Roosevelt has remained an iconic figure in the American consciousness ever since his band of Rough Riders charged up Cuba's San Juan Hill. This richly illustrated and generously expanded version of The Rough Riders brings to life the watershed events that steered him toward the White House and made him one of the most colorful and memorable presidents in history.
