The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt

By Edmund Morris
Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, 1979
886 pp. $15.95

An exuberant, beautifully written and painstaking biography of Theodore Roosevelt from childhood to the eve of the presidency. Morris does not deny Roosevelt's arrogant egotism and his taste for violence, but basically this is an old-fashioned portrait of a heroic figure.
