Theodore Roosevelt’s life story encompasses death-defying adventures, battlefield bravery, audacious political maneuvering, visionary social and environmental legislation, and notable literary accomplishment. A natural-born leader, Roosevelt set the highest standards for himself—and demonstrated that they could be met by anyone willing to put forth the energy and commitment. In A Passion to Lead, TR chronicles his remarkable life in his own eloquent words.
A Passion to Lead features a variety of excerpts from Roosevelt’s writings and speeches that touch on his numerous passions and preoccupations. This compelling narrative includes pieces from his autobiography, sections from his adventure memoirs set in the American West and the farthest reaches of the Amazon, abridgements from his Rough Riders memoir, along with speeches, articles and letters. Accompanying the text are fascinating images and ephemera (many never before published) that bring Roosevelt’s world and career to vibrant life, revealing a man with a voracious appetite for knowledge and experience, a deep-seated calling to public service, and an enduring love for his country and the world.
