From the ranch to the White House : life of Theodore Roosevelt, author, legislator, field sportsman, soldier, reformer, and executive by Edward Sylvester Ellis( Book )

1 edition published in 1906 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodore Roosevelt is one of the most admirable types of American manhood that ever lived. He is a patriot to the bone, his integrity is unassailable, his ability of the highest order. He has been an unrelenting foe of dishonesty and corruption from the first ; the one question respecting every measure brought before him is, "Is it right?" And that which he believes is right, that will he do, though the heavens fall. He was heavily handicapped at the beginning. He was born into a "blue blood" family and without the necessity of toiling for a living. But no one cares less for a name, and no laborer on the streets works harder than he. He was of weak, puny frame, yet made himself one of the sturdiest and most powerful of men ; he is clean-minded, a brave, aggressive Christian, a mighty hunter, a brilliant author, and a forceful speaker, one who always has something to say, and says it with irrestrainable earnestness, while every one who hears his words admits that they are well worth hearing. President Roosevelt, therefore, is an inspiring lesson to all American youth, upon whom the truth cannot be too deeply impressed that manliness, honesty, integrity, moral and physical courage, patriotism, and the love of God and one's fellow-men, are the highest and truest ideals ; that their attainment constitutes the surest road to success, even in a worldly sense, and it is they, and they alone, that make life worth living. - Preface
