More Information
No American president has been so enthusiastic in his appreciation of the wilderness and in his attention to the preservation of natural treasures as Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt the Explorer dutifully chronicles the adventurer's lifelong quests and expeditions, which saw him traversing some of North America, South America, and Africa's most difficult terrain.

Within these pages, T.R. ascends the Nile aboard a traditional dahabeah; procures more than a 100 bird specimens as a 14-year old in Egypt; tracks wild animals in the Rocky Mountains and Sierras; bushwhacks in the canebrakes of the Mississippi Delta; undertakes a Smithsonian-funded Kenyan safari; encounters countless species of exotic wildlife, including jaguars, giant anteaters, deadly snakes, and blood-sucking vampire bats; works as President to save American forests and wetlands from rampant development; discovers a tributary of the Amazon River known as the Rio da Duvida--later renamed the Rio Roosevelt by the Brazilian government; and much, much more. Roosevelt the Explorer brings to light the incredible exploits of a man whose often-controversial interests--big game hunting and federal conservation--would greatly shape the years surrounding his Presidency and beyond.
