Quentin Roosevelt was the youngest son of President Theodore Roosevelt, a man greatly admired by his colleagues, popular with his fellow World War One fliers, possessed with great ability, flair and intellectual ability. Sadly his life was destined to be brash, brave, brilliant and all too short. On the entry of America in to the First World War in 1917, Quentin dropped out of college to join the newly formed 1st Reverse Aero Squadron. His first services were on the ground at the famous Issoudun training base, but he demanded and received his pilot's wings transferring into 95th Aero Squadron part of 1st Pursuit Group, the aerial gladiators of the American Airforce. His flying career was not to last long, his contemporary, the famous flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker commented his flying style was bordering on the suicidal with a great contempt for danger; "He was reckless to such a degree that his commanding officers had to caution him repeatedly about the senselessness of his lack of caution. His bravery was so notorious that we all knew he would either achieve some great spectacular success or be killed in the attempt. Even the pilots in his own flight would beg him to conserve himself and wait for a fair opportunity for a victory. But Quentin would merely laugh away all serious advice." He claimed his first victory only a day after his squadron was posted to Touquin and the front lines; but he was shot down a mere four days later. His letters were collected by his brother Kermit, who lovingly and carefully edited into this book which gives a picture of his headstrong, dashing brother poignantly including the many letters of tribute from Quentin's fellow flyers. An excellent and vivid excellent snapshot of a young tyro in the American Air Force of the First World War

Through the Brazilian wilderness by Theodore Roosevelt( Book )

5 editions published between 1914 and 2014 in English and Portuguese and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1914, with the well-wishes of the Brazilian government, Theodore Roosevelt, ex-president of the United States; his son, Kermit; and Colonel Rondon travel to South America on a quest to course the River of Doubt. While in Brazil, Theodore is also tasked with a 'zoogeographic reconnaissance' of the local wilderness for the archives of the Natural History Museum of New York. In addition to the perils of the incredibly difficult and dangerous terrain, the river was nicknamed The River of Death as a testament to its ferocious rapids. Covering a previously undocumented area of South America, this expedition would be a momentous undertaking and fraught with danger. The expedition, officially named Expedicao Scientific Roosevelt-Rondon, was not without incident: men were lost, a cannibalistic tribe tracked the group, and at one point Roosevelt contracted flesh-eating bacteria. In the end though, the Roosevelt-Rondon expedition was a success, and the River of Doubt was renamed the Rio Roosevelt in his honor. Written by a city-born boy who grew up to be a true explorer and leader, Roosevelt's Through the Brazilian Wilderness is a unique and important part of history, and it is indicative of the ex-president's true wanderlust and bravery. Candid black-and-white photos from the expedition fill the pages, adding further dimensions to this remarkable journey"--Publisher's description
