Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Theodore Rex is the story-never fully told before--of Theodore Roosevelt's two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A hundredyears before the catastrophe of September 11, 2001, TR succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with hissuperhuman energy, charm, and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his mosthistoric achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, and his monument millions of acres of protected parks and forest. Theodore Rex ends with TR leaving office, still only fiftyyears old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:
