this is a good read, not dry or dull like alot of biographies. it's a very long book but full of detail about day to day goings on. i'm going to read the two following t.r books when i finish this.

Ron Townsend

The rise of a Roman Candle

by Ron Townsend on Jul 23, 2007

Before Edmund Morris became famous with his unorthodox Dutch, he wrote of the rise of Theodore Roosevelt in this book. Roosevelt was a voracious reader from childhood and had his own zoo of collectible animals. He sufferred from asthma but overcame that by brute force and boxing, from which he sufferred lost of sight in one eye during a boxing match in the White house. He was a very likeable boy, teenager and young man. You always knew where you stood with Roosevelt and if he liked something it was just "bully." I have the inclination to read biographies only through the beginning of a subject's important years. In this case it was the beginning of his presidency. I like to know what made them tick when they were young. Almost all famous people show signs of their destiny when they are young. And there are late bloomers like Reagan. Roosevelt was also our first scientist as President. His interest in birds and zoology was enormous. The only other scientist I can think of is Carter. Anyone wanting to have a very good idea about Roosevelt will read it in this book. It is absolute not written in the same vein as Dutch. There are no fictional friends here.
