I have never been an American history buff.  I always felt our history was boring and I liked British history so much better, that I minored in it in college.  When I was asked to be a part of this tour, I hesitated because even though I’ve read other books by Jerome Charyn and loved them, I wasn’t sure if a book about Teddy Roosevelt was really for me.


If this would have been the way American history was taught, maybe I would have paid more attention! Jerome Charyn brings the stubborn, passionate, force to be reckoned with that is Teddy Roosevelt to life with a brilliance that I believe only he possesses.  None have pulled me away from work so quickly with a piece of non-fiction as he has.  He makes you feel as if you are right there with Teddy as he bravely goes forward, even when the deck is stacked seriously against him.  I couldn’t help but wonder what happened next as he went from the arenas of politics, badlands sheriff and soldier of war.

I feel a little guilty for having doubts that this book would delight me.  I should have had faith in Jerome Charyn, but the non-fiction world is so dry! If you feel the same way I did, give this book a try.  I highly recommend it.  Maybe you’ll feel the same way I do.
