Editorial Review
As much a symbol of the nation’s adventurous past as he was the very picture of booming 20th-century progress, Theodore Roosevelt—politician and soldier, naturalist and historian—was still a young man when he left the Oval Office, and he spent the decade after his presidency exploring the world... and sharing his experiences in his inimitable prose. In this 1916 book, he leads us: • on a cougar hunt on the rim of the Grand Canyon • trekking across the Navajo Desert • to a Hopi snake dance • across the Andes and Northern Patagonia • through bird reserves at the mouth of the Mississippi • and much more… Roosevelt’s rip-roaring, real-life exploits are just as entertaining today as they were a century ago, and serve as a stirring reminder of the breathtaking beauty and lurking danger of the natural world. American icon THEODORE ROOSEVELT (1858–1919) was 26th President of the United States, serving from 1901 to 1909, and the first American to win a Nobel Prize, in 1906, when he was awarded the Peace Prize for mediating the Russo-Japanese War. He is the author of 35 books.
