Mornings on Horseback por David McCullough (1981)

  1. 10
    The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism por Doris Kearns Goodwin (rakerman)
    rakerman: The Bully Pulpit covers some biographical details of Theodore Roosevelt Jr.'s life but at a much quicker summary level than Mornings on Horseback. Mornings on Horseback starts off mostly about Theodore Roosevelt Sr., and its level of detail is sometimes excruciating. Each book provides a different perspective on the life and character of Theodore Roosevelt Jr.; they complement each other well.… (más)

Most readers seemed to like this book, and I saw that it was the winner of the 1982 National Book Award for Biography, but it didn't work for me. The sub-title told it all, e.g., it was the story of an extraordinary family, a vanished way of life, and the story of a remarkable little boy -- seriously handicapped by recurrent and nearly fatal attacks of asthma -- and his struggle to manhood. The book concentrates on the time when T.R. is between 10 and in his late 20's, and while giving some insight into those formative years, it didn't really cover his Presidency or the lagacy he left behind. Unfortunately (for me) that was the part that was of most interest to me. There was obviously a great amount of research which went into the book, but the description of the dress his sister wore at a cousin's wedding, or the meals they ate is information which was of little interest to me.

This is a well written book about Teddy Roosevelt’s formative years and his family. The author has conducted valuable research on the Roosevelts. The information covers background on the life of his mother and father as well as grandparents and other immediate family. Much of the book is spent on Teddy’s childhood and his health. Later sections discuss his introduction into politics and his adventures out west. Teddy’s family wealth and privileged situation allowed him to pursue his interests in nature and hunting and to have extended leave from responsibilities. He seems to have been motivated in part to be worthy of his father’s approval. I recommend this book to anyone interested in information about Teddy Roosevelt’s life and family ( )

McCullough is an excellent writer who wrote many books about American history. This is an extraordinary picture of the Roosevelts, their wealth, their commitment to philanthropy and the major impact they had on the United States.

Born into wealth, as a child Theodore Roosevelt suffered from severe asthma. His early memories were of his father walking him round his room, holding him in the hope that his love would overcome the nasty inability of his child to breathe. His early years were spent with his parents traveling to places where they thought the atmosphere would help him breathe.

His father was the first Theodore Roosevelt and told his son he needed to overcome his frail body and teach it to work according to what was needed to survive. Attractive, family centered, his namesake assimilated the traits of his father. Through example, Theodore learned the importance of giving, of sharing and moving forward with the goal of becoming an excellent leader, and a person who gave beyond measure.

Funding, building and helping to fill the Natural History Museum in NYC, this treasure stands today as a testimony to what money well spent can do. In addition, a fact I did not know, the Roosevelts were instrumental in building the Art Museum in NYC as well.

He became a robust man, who pushed his body to travel on horses, and to overcome what might have killed him as a child.

This is an excellent look at the historical period and those who shaped the history of the country!

Read from Dec 2020 to Jan 2021. Good read. Longer chapters divided into shorter segments that help break it up. Would recommend it for those who love history and want to gain insight into the family background, childhood, and young adulthood of Teddy Roosevelt. Learned a lot about his parents and siblings, but especially his dad and sister Bamie. The book does a great job explaining the dynamics of his privileged childhood, the physical ailments he (and his siblings) battled as a child, and who he became as a young man after his dad died, specifically when he went out west. It details how he got into politics, but abruptly ends with his run for mayor. ( )
