    Having previously ready both of Edmund Morris books on Roosevelt I still found this books very intriguing It was interesting to read a biography about someone many would consider the ultimate man s man written by a woman Perhaps not surprisingly, Dalton chose to portray his entire life through the lens of gender Normally I woul...

    Ms Dalton starts out her biography of Theodore Roosevelt by pointing out his legacy as a caricature all spectacles, mustache and teeth She then goes on to present him as a real human being with a significant legacy in American history, but he comes across as no less a character As she tells the tale, Theodore Roosevelt was a force of nature He was raised in wealth and imbued with a sense of duty and an obsession to be strong and manly Roosevelt s father set the tone for his life Coming fr Ms Dalton starts out her biography of Theodore Roosevelt by pointing out his legacy as a caricature all spectacles, mustache and teeth She then goes on to present him as a real human being with a significant legacy in American history, but he comes across as no less a character As she tells the tale, Theodore Roosevelt was a force of nature He was raised in wealth...
