Most history books and biographies haven’t told Teddy’s full story—that our bombastic twenty-sixth president was created from the ways of trappers and thieves in the Wild West.
In a new book Forging a President: How the Wild West Created
Teddy Roosevelt by William Hazelgrove sets the record
straight. Using Roosevelt’s own writings and reflections, Forging a
President shows how heartbreak – and life in the Badlands – formed
the spirit of T.R. It's amazing how much you don't know about
someone you think you know a lot about.
