Theodore Rex is the story–never fully told before–of Theodore Roosevelt’s two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A 100 years before September 11, 2001, TR succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with his superhuman energy, charm and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his most historic achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, protecting millions of acres of parks and forests. This book ends with TR leaving office, still only 50 years old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents.
