On the whole, Theodore Roosevelt once wrote, "I have continued all my life to have a better time year after year." Roosevelt was a small, ailing boy who overcame his physical problems--seemingly by sheer enthusiasm and will power--to achieve a career filled with adventure, fun and success. As usual, Jean Fritz makes the most of her material, as she presents a portrait of a unique, larger-than-life American. Roosevelt comes alive through such telling details as the clothes he wore and the lively games he played with his children. "Teddy couldn't get along without a rocking chair. Even when he sat down to rest, he liked to feel that at least his chair was on the go." The author follows T.R.'s political career and his impact on the nation through his work in conservation, legislation and tax reforms.
