  • SparkNotes: Theodore Roosevelt: Further Reading
  • Theodore Rex by by Edmund Morris: Summary and reviews



While it would be difficult to capture the spirit of any American President, a position held by some of our most complex citizens, it would seem almost impossible to relate the essence of one of the greatest, Theodore Roosevelt. America’s 26th President was a personality that knew few bounds and even less fear and unlike many of those before or after him, he could have retired at the age of 40 having never entered the White House with an already incredible list of accomplishments. The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt covers this time period, from his birth in 1858 to his first day in office as President in 1901 after William McKinley was shot.

In total The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt is a very well written and extensively researched book on one our greatest President’s and should go down as an authoritative account of his life before taking office. It seems a biography of such an exciting life would practically write itself without too much narrative effort from the author, but not taking it lightly, Morris’s skill actually adds to the story. Needless to say I’m excited to read the next installment in the trilogy, Theodore Rex , because if it’s even a bit as interesting I’m sure it will be a great read.

This book and Theodore Rex   are available from Snell Library.  The Library also has a number of other books on Roosevelt, including his speeches and autobiography.
