That's Colonel Roosevelt!


At long last, Edmund Morris completes his trilogy of
Teddy Roosevelt!

  1. I hope Robert can rejoin us soon. This one and the Chernow should make for great discussions in the fall/winter.

    Thanks for the alert.

  2. It would be great to get Robert back in the mix. I haven't heard from him in awhile. This is a book that would definitely draw his interest.

    I loved Morris' first book on TR. Theodore Rex didn't quite measure up, but was still a lot of fun to read.

    Morris is such a good writer. He was even able to make something out of Reagan, albeit it appeared with his tongue nestled inside his cheek.

  3. Good Evening. This is anexperiment to see if I can get back into things. I chose this site becaue I recently exchangfd e mail with gintaras and it showed that although i'm slow, I can navigate and function fairly well.
    Hello avrds--its been over a year and I'm now retired and fully recovered except for poor eyesight. TR s father once told him that his mind was sperb, but his body was weak (astma). As i lay in a hospital bed last year--totally paralyzed I ewmembered what his father told him: YOU MUST MAKE YOUR BODY---and that helped me --encouraged me to walk and to re-learn everything--and I did--so TR and TR senior get my first post. I'll return in a couple of weeks--this took about ten minutes and I'm speeding up rapidly.....

  9. I'm willing to commit to reading the TR book when it comes out. It could be our December book and a celebration. Perfect way to start the new year!
