Bully. The superb conclusion to Edmund Morris’ trilogy on the life of Theodore Roosevelt is titled Colonel Roosevelt. Those who have read the earlier installments have been waiting a decade for this book, and the wait has been worth it. Morris presents the final decade of Roosevelt’s life as a time packed with tragedies and setbacks, while Roosevelt’s indomitable spirit soars above all obstacles until his death. Despite the almost 800 pages of this book, I wanted to read even more about the 1912 election or the trip down the River of Doubt. Any reader who enjoys American history will find the character of Teddy Roosevelt as presented here to be as engaging and interesting a presentation as one can find.
Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
