Theodore Roosevelt was perhaps the strongest environmentalist of all the U.S. presidents. A unique anecdote concerns the night that Roosevelt spent with Muir in Yosemite, where the two men talked long into the night. Douglas Brinkley discusses Roosevelt’s work on behalf of the environment in The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America. Edmund Morris explores his life more fully in a series of three books: The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Theodore Rex, and Colonel Roosevelt. Doris Kearns Goodwin’s latest book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, is more about Progressivism than conservation but nonetheless provides good insight into Roosevelt’s life.
