The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America

by Douglas Brinkley

Pages: 960

Theodore Roosevelt spent the day of July 1, 1908, the tenth anniversary of the Battle of San Juan Hill, creating forty-five national forests.  In this biographical study of Theodore Roosevelt’s campaign to save hundreds of millions of acres of wilderness, Mr. Brinkley writes that “the forestry movement would be forced down his opponents’ throats.” Roosevelt’s intense love for nature was a conqueror’s love—triumphal Darwinism—and included a “blood lust” in hunting the wildlife he championed.
