The Most Interesting American By Rick Marschall AudioBook summary
Theodore Roosevelt largely is known today by stereotypes and his many accomplishments—but the full and fascinating essence of the man is fading. In this book, TR charges back!
Historian Rick Marschall has collected almost five hundred quotations, descriptions, impressions, and memories of the “Most Interesting American” derived from vintage newspapers, magazines, scrapbooks, diaries, letters, and so much more. In chapters devoted to his personality as a family man, a conservationist, an intellectual, patriot, activist, and as an American TR comes alive as never before seen.
In more than a century since his death, the personal attributes that endeared Theodore to his America have become obscured. In this book of firsthand, eyewitness accounts TR comes roaring back to us in all of his astonishing ways!
