Candice Millard is the author of River of Doubt, an excellent book on Theodore Roosevelt and his post-presidential journey through the Amazon, as well as a brand-new book, Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine, and the Murder of a President. She’s also the author of this blurb, on the back of The Big Scrum:
In Miller’s hands, the story of Theodore Roosevelt’s love for, and defense of, ‘the great game’ has as much vigor and passion as Roosevelt himself. It’s a fascinating, thoroughly American tale.”
This week, she’s my NRO podcast victim, discussing Destiny of the Republic.
