A Life of Theodore Roosevelt
Aida D. Donald
Read by Pam Ward
Theodore Roosevelt called himself a Progressive—a category that is no longer part of our political lexicon. But Roosevelt was not a man interested in fitting any mold. With his boundless energy and intelligence he conquered New York City politics, rode the range, fought in the Spanish-American War, penned numerous bestselling histories and biographies, created the National Park System, promoted the building of the Panama Canal, and won the Nobel Peace Prize (the only sitting United States president to have done so). Donald’s work is billed as an “affectionate” biography. In every inflection and adjective, narrator Pam Ward mirrors the author’s admiration for the man who is often considered to be the country’s first modern president.
