2432Re: What are the top five must read books about Theodore Roosevelt?
- Dec 5, 2011I like many books about and by TR. Here are a few and I think it IS important to read TR in his OWN words. That tells you a LOT about him.
1. The 7 Worlds of TR by Edward Wagenknecht - Excellent summary of TR from so many angles.
2. Theodore Roosevelt and His Times - Excellent TR & Times
3. The Republican Roosevelt - Excellent short book on TR's political talents and ultimate failures with the Progressive Party
4. Brinkley's Wilderness Warrior - Definitive work on both his background in the sciences, naturalism, nature love and conserv
5. Theodore Roosevelt - An American Mind - Selected Writings - Shows his amazing diversity as a writer.
