Available for the first time in audio, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt is the story of seven men - a naturalist, a writer, a lover, a hunter, a ranchman, a soldier, and a politician - who merged at age 42 to become the youngest American President in history. Twenty-one years ago, this classic biography (the first volume of a planned trilogy; the second, Theodore Rex, was published in 2001) won both the Pulitzer Prize and American Book Award, and since then it has never been out of print.
