Lion in the White House: A Life of Theodore Roosevelt, by Aida Donald, paperback (very good condition); association copy from the home of the author

 

A masterful, concise biography of Theodore Roosevelt, America's first modern president
New York State Assemblyman, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Governor of New York, Vice President and, at forty-two, the youngest President ever--in his own words, Theodore Roosevelt "rose like a rocket." In Lion in the White House, historian Aida Donald masterfully chronicles Roosevelt's life and his presidency.

 

TR's accomplishments in office were immense. Believing that the emerging aristocracy of wealth represented a genuine threat to democracy, TR broke trusts to curb the rapacity of big business. He built the Panama Canal and engaged the country in world affairs. And he won the Nobel Peace Prize-the first sitting president ever so honored. Throughout his public career, TR fought valiantly to steer the GOP back to its noblest ideals as embodied by Abraham Lincoln. Alas, his hopes for his party were quashed by the GOP's strong rightward turn in the years after he left office. But his vision for America lives on.
