What do you get when you combine an obsessive reader and writer, a "wild and woolly" adventurer, an astute naturalist, and an ironclad political will? The answer: Teddy Roosevelt, the twenty-sixth president of the United States. Now, for the first time, National Geographic Adventure Classics Series editor Anthony Brandt focuses on Roosevelt's robust and adventurous spirit, and treats readers to an engaging assortment of Roosevelt's far-flung adventures across the American West, Africa, and South America.

Drawn from Roosevelt's numerous journals, letters, articles, books, and his autobiography, The Adventures of Theodore Roosevelt is a chronicle of the president's adventurous life in his own words. In addition to passages from Roosevelt's well-loved books, such as The Rough Riders and Through the Brazilian Wilderness, the anthology also includes little-known excerpts from all areas of Roosevelt's life?his ill health in early years; his grieving over the deaths of his wife and mother; his charge at the battle of San Juan; his hunting and traveling; and his conservation efforts as president. Woven together in this exciting narrative, the selections form a complete chronological account of Roosevelt's lifetime of adventure.

Beautifully enhanced by photographs and maps, The Adventures of Theodore Roosevelt is an unforgettable volume which best presents the unconquerable spirit of one of America's most fascinating figures of past or present.
