Teddy Roosevelt was a man of many selves – naturalist, conservationist, writer, wilderness lover, big game hunter, ranchman, soldier, and politician. He was a gentleman of inherited wealth who tried to persuade America to end child labor, protect the unemployed, let women vote, and grant old-age pensions. He was the Rough Rider who won the Nobel Peace Prize – a lifelong politician and, on occasion, a statesman.
At the height of his popularity, he stepped down from the Presidency. Four years later he bolted the Republican Party to challenge his hand-picked successor. In just over ninety days, he and his “Bull Moose” Party humbled a sitting president and decisively beat a party that had dominated national politics for forty years.
Put on your pith helmets! Prepare to enter the arena. Teddy Roosevelt’s re-inventing American politics.
