Book Description:
President of the United States of America is an official title sought by many and won by only a few individuals. The series entitled First Men, America’s President, contains a book length biography of each President of the United States of America. Every book contains information on the President’s early education, professional career, military or political service prior to the presidency, interpretative discussion of both domestic and foreign policies during each presidency, and the conclusion of their political lives in public service. The two major themes of this series are the character traits marking success in the presidency, and the changes in the office of presidents throughout America’s history. Character matters in all walks of life, but perhaps matters most within the character of the President of the United States.

Book Review

"This biography of Theodore Roosevelt is one of the most accessible and easy to read books of recent publication. The author lays out the president's career and achievements, foreign and domestic. He describes well the reasons Roosevelt wanted the Panama Canal. The only portion I found convoluted was his history of the Forest Service, which was always in the Department of Agriculture (under various names). Duties formerly administered by the General Land Office in the Department of the Interior were transferred to the Dept. of Agriculture via the Transfer Act of 1905. Otherwise, this is the book one should read prior to reading Paul Cutright's "Theodore Roosevelt, the Making of a Conservationist." - R. Hartsock, Denton, Texas USA
