Synopsis

The Remarkable Rough-riding Life of Theodore Roosevelt by Cheryl Harness

The eagerly awaited third title in the Cheryl Harness Histories series paints a vibrant portrait of Theodore Roosevelt--Rough Rider, trustbuster, explorer, President, and more--whose bullish attitude forever changed America.
How did a sickly boy transform himself into one of the country's boldest leaders? You'll get the full story--front page and behind-the-scenes--as only Cheryl Harness can tell it. Through her lively narrative and engaging artwork, readers will see Teddy riding the range in South Dakota, charging up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American War, climbing the political ladder all the way to the White House, breaking up big business, building the Panama Canal, and big-game hunting in Africa. They will also experience life in America when the telephone, airplane, and automobile were all brand-new, when women, blacks, and laborers were demanding equal rights, and when the cry for expansion stretched the borders from Maine to the Philippines and from Puerto Rico to Alaska. This was an age in which Roosevelt's promise to give every American a square deal and to walk softly and carry a big stick helped build the country into a world power.
With a new adventure on almost every page, readers will find themselves wowed by this true story of a larger-than-life American hero, and the country and times in which he lived.
