Product description

Review

Praise for Colonel Roosevelt

"Now with Colonel Roosevelt, the magnum opus is complete. And it deserves to stand as the definitive study of its restless, mutable, ever-boyish, erudite and tirelessly energetic subject. Mr. Morris has addressed the toughest and most frustrating part of Roosevelt's life with the same care and precision that he brought to the two earlier installments. And if this story of a lifetime is his own life's work, he has reason to be immensely proud." -Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Exemplary... Consistently rich and on point, with rapidly developing events providing a backdrop for the balanced examination [Morris] presents of his subject...The TR trilogy is masterful, and can rightfully take its place among the truly outstanding biographies of the American presidency." -LA Times

"Reading Edmund Morris on Teddy Roosevelt is like listening to Yo-Yo Ma play Bach: You know from the first note you're in inspired hands. In Colonel Roosevelt--the final installment in a trilogy that began with The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and Theodore Rex--Morris registers the Bull Moose's last decade in handsome, sweeping prose that avoids the valedictory chord struck by biographers who, nearing the end of their prodigious labors, resort to swooning across the chapters, unwilling to let go of their muse." - The Washingtonian

"Colonel Roosevelt, the third part of his three-volume biography of Roosevelt, is a worthy and extremely engaging culmination of Mr. Morris' work. It is popular history at its best." -Claude R. Marx, The Washington Times

Praise for the classic biographies by Edmond Morris

The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

"One of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment."--The New York Times Book Review

"A towering biography."--Time

Theodore Rex
Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Biography

"A masterpiece . . . A great president has finally found a great biographer."--The Washington Post

"As a literary work on Theodore Roosevelt, it is unlikely ever to be surpassed. It is one of the great histories of the American presidency, worthy of being on a shelf alongside Henry Adams's volumes on Jefferson and Madison."--Times Literary Supplement

"Magnificent . . . a compulsively readable, beautifully measured and paced account."--Chicago Tribune

About the Author

Edmund Morris was born and educated in Kenya and went to college in South Africa. He worked as an advertising copywriter in London before immigrating to the United States in 1968. His first book, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1980. Its sequel, Theodore Rex, won the Los Angeles Times Award for Biography in 2002. In between these two books, Morris became President Reagan's authorized biographer, and published the national bestseller Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan. More recently he has written Beethoven: The Universal Composer. Edmund Morris lives in New York City and Kent, Connecticut, with his wife and fellow biographer, Sylvia Jukes Morris.
