This book chronicles Theodore Roosevelt's lifelong quests and expeditions-thrilling and often dangerous journeys that produced much important scientific research and took him across North America, South America, and Africa. From the Dakotas to the infamous River of Doubt in the Amazon, from Yosemite to Yellowstone, Roosevelt's adventures provide a robust record of the natural world by not merely being an observer, but a figure that was responsible for saving much of it for future generations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Most people think of Thomas Jefferson as the quintessential Renaissance president, while Theodore Roosevelt is remembered as a trust-busting empire builder. But, as H. Paul Jeffers shows, Roosevelt was a highly developed natural scientist, explorer, and the first real environmental president. As an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and associate member of Roosevelt's own Boone and Crockett Club, I read Jeffers' text with a feeling that I was at T.R.'s side. -- Charles M. Robinson III, author of The Men Who Wear the Star: The Story of the Texas Rangers and A Good Year to Die: The Story of the Great Sioux War
Theodore Roosevelt loved both nature and adventure. Whether ranching in the Dakotas, pursuing big game in Africa, or exploring South American rivers, T.R. lived the strenuous life other dreamed of leading. Now H. Paul Jeffers brings that story to life in a vivid, fast-paced narrative that at times is as breathtaking as the man himself. -- Brooks D. Simpson, Arizona State University, author of Ulysses S. Grant: Triumph over Adversity
A fascinating, affectionate biography of Roosevelt the outdoorsman, hunter, adventurer, nature-lover, and westerner. Filled with striking quotations and evocative details. -- Edward E. Leslie, author of Desperate Journeys, Abandoned Souls: True Stories of Castaways and Other Survivors
