Mornings on HorsebackMornings on Horseback by David McCullough

“Extraordinary biography of an extraordinary man.  From Kirkus Review: “those familiar with the story of the puny, sickly boy (Teddy Roosevelt) who made himself over by will power alone have the most to look forward to. That is not, for one thing, what McCullough found in the thousands of Roosevelt family letters. But he does not merely offer another, more complex and fine-tuned interpretation; he has embedded it in the true-life equivalent of a Russian novel of relations and generations, of mood and moment (whence those “”mornings on horseback”” at Oyster Bay) and               shaded characterization.”
