What’s your favorite book on Theodore Roosevelt? I’ve enjoyed many. For the sake of picking just one, I’ll recommend Mornings on Horseback, by David McCullough. It’s a family biography of the whole Roosevelt clan. TR is the star and McCullough describes his story from birth until the mid-1880s. Yet the book also devotes a substantial amount of attention to TR’s parents and siblings. It provides a compelling portrait of the world that shaped one of our most fascinating presidents.
Let’s get a discussion going: In the comments section, share your own advice on the literature of TR.
