Product Details


“Monumental . . . Morris is a stylish storyteller with an irresistible subject.”—The New York Times Book Review

Colonel Roosevelt is compelling reading, and [Edmund] Morris is a brilliant biographer who practices his art at the highest level. . . . The writing is vivid in its restraint, powerful in its precision and shapely in its structure and vision. Morris has a way of making aspects of Roosevelt’s life and values relevant in both dark and bright ways. A moving, beautifully rendered account of Roosevelt’s near-death by assassination during the campaign of 1912 resonated for this reader with all the emotion of the assassinations of our recent history.”—Fred Kaplan, The Washington Post

“Hair-raising . . . awe-inspiring . . . a worthy close to a trilogy sure to be regarded as one of the best studies not just of any president, but of any American.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Reading Edmund Morris on Theodore Roosevelt is like listening to Yo-Yo Ma play Bach: you know from the first note you’re in inspired hands.”—The Washingtonian
“[A] splendid and indispensable study of America’s twenty-sixth president . . . Morris is a superb chronicler of Roosevelt’s busy, peripatetic life. . . . Abraham Lincoln may embody America’s soul, but Theodore Roosevelt has America’s heart.”—Chicago Tribune
