Roosevelt in December?
Tentatively we have Colonel Roosevelt scheduled for December. The book is due out November 23. Would like to take a quick survey of those interested in Edmund Morris' final installment of his TR trilogy, or if there are other books persons would like to suggest.
Having just about finished an advance copy of the book, I can heartily recommend it, as Morris covers a lot of ground in the tumultuous last 10 years of Roosevelt's life (1909-1919) from his big game hunt in Africa, to the formation of the Progressive Party in 1912 to his Journey through the Brazilian Wilderness to his infamous battles with Wilson over American neutrality in WWI and the revolution taking place in Mexico. Enough here to capture just about anyone's attention. The book weighs in at a little under 600 pages.
But, this forum always remains open to suggestions, so please comment or post your opinions.
