Format: Paperback
“Theodore Roosevelt:A Life” by Nathan Miller is an excellent survey of one of the greatest of American lives. From birth to death, Miller takes us along the path blazed by this Rough Rider. I say that it is excellent because it presents this extraordinary life in fine writing style. I call it a survey because it seems to run through 60 action packed years at the rapid pace necessary for a one volume biography.
The outline of TR’s life is here: The sickly boy who “builds his body”, the snobbish Harvard man, the New York Assemblyman and the young romantic. Shattered by a lost love, TR enters the cattle business in the Dakotas. His Dakota Sabbatical completed, he is ready for the return to New York, public life and his childhood sweetheart, Edith Carrow. Rising through appointive position in the U. S. Civil Service Commission, the New York Police Board and the Navy Department, TR gradually deepened his experience and broadened his network.
During his early life, TR was molded by personal tragedy. The sudden death of his father when TR was 19 forced him into a more responsible maturity. The death of this wife and mother in the same house of unrelated conditions on February 14, 1884 plunged him into mourning from which he found relief only in flight. Leaving his newborn daughter with his sister, he went West to enter the cattle business which, incidentally, was a reasonable business decision at the time.
By this time some of the major themes and ironies of his life had been established. As a member of the New York Assembly, TR had established himself as a crusader for political reform and corporate regulation. Although a political maverick, his leadership qualities made his political advance inexorable.

Format: Paperback
A very inspiring and thoughtful book of Theodore Roosevelt, the tradgedies and triumphs. Dealing with asthma as a boy, the care of a devoted father which he would try to measure up to all his life, the deaths of his wife and mother on the same day. This book is about Theodore's life and rise to power as the most powerful and beloved man on the Earth at that time, the building of the Navy, the Panama Canal, the National Parks saving millions of acres of woodlands and marshes and animals. Just the type of leader we need now, truly a must read.

Format: Paperback
Having read 26 presidential biographies I place this one among the top five. We get a good view of Roosevelt including details from daily life that often are not found in 1 volume biographies. The prose is smooth. The author has no axe to grind but presents a picture of the man and his times in a sympathetic way, not, however, ignoring some of Roosevelt's strange thoughts, writings and behavior. A very pleasant and informative read.

Format: Paperback
Although there are better biographies on the life of Theodore Roosevelt, this book is very readable and flows well. It is an achievement which equals the life of a man who was GREAT. The accuracy of the book is right on and the author gets where he is going quickly, and with as little unnecessary detail as possible. This book is a great one to read for a look at the life of one of our most outstanding presidents.

Format: Paperback
I have fancied myself a presidential biography nut, having read works on nearly all the chief executives. Regardless of your knowledge about this enthusiastic man, Miller keeps you engaged through his simple, yet penetrating style. The chapters on Roosevelt's great adventures out west and his later trip in South America (where he nearly lost his life) instilled a fire in me to read more about those fascinating periods of TR's life. Every student should be required to read about this true American. Miller's book is a great start.
