Photos with detailed (but not detailed enough) captions. The pictures range from age 7, where we see a posed "Teedie," to Sept. 1918 where we see him as the Colonel (for completeness there is a gravestone photo too). Because of the nature of photography at the time the pictures are all staged, or at least semi-staged, and therefore give us a view of Roosevelt's public life as it progressed. There are certainly none we would call "intimate." Most of the pictures are from middle distance or further out, so they lack immediate detail. A couple are downright indistinct, but worth inclusion because of the historical context. The best of the photos are the posed "official" ones of Roosevelt as governor and president. The captions are adequate for casual viewers, but disappointing for history buffs. There is a fine picture of Roosevelt as president meeting with his 1905 cabinet, but the caption fails to identify any of the cabinet members. There is another of Roosevelt standing between the Russian and Japanese envoys during the 1904 peace negotiations, but fails to identify the envoys. This must have been an editorial decision, but it is one that impoverishes the book for the serious history student. The rather bland captions could have been kept, with small print identifications provided. The book is valuable in that it provides larger format photos, but unless you are devoted to Roosevelt or the progressive era, the photos in a standard biography, like the Morris trilogy, should be adequate.

What I was hoping for was a book with photos that hadn't been published in other Roosevelt books. At least half of these I've seen before. Also, it would have been nice to have seen more family photos and photos at Sagamore. They might not be available. If so, my apologies.

TR has become one of the more popular historic Presidents and many books have been written about his life and his work. The Library of America has a collection of his books and another of his letters. I recommend both heartily. And I also encourage you to add to your understanding of the life of Theodore Roosevelt with this collection of a couple hundred photographs taken from all periods of his life. A few of them you will have seen in the popular images and in the biographies, but most you will not have seen unless you are a TR specialist.

This book was put together by Stacy A. Cordery who is a scholar on TR and his daughter, Alice. She has written an excellent foreword and captions for the pictures. Cordery lets the pictures do most of the work, but adds just the right touch of context to help us understand better what we are looking at. She also notes that we have so many of these helpful photos because TR was so adept at using the press and getting them to help him get the publicity he wanted.

While the photo is printed to very high quality standards, the pictures come from a time when the skill of the photographer mattered a great deal to the final product, so you will notice some variance in the texture of the photos. They are not because of the publisher. And the large format allows us to study the photos very closely. Get out a magnifying glass and see the detail you can pick up. It really is quite cool.

A very nice book.

Nice big pictures. Ones you can actually see. Taking you through his life from beginning to end.

Question for Stacy A. Cordery or anyone else. On page 33 there is a picture with explanation "The boneyard of the Cabanas military prison, located at the mouth of the Havana harbor."

I can't find anything on these bones. How come?

There's a picture of Teddy and his wife on page 192 and I'll be danged if he doesn't look like Bill Gates~!

We desperately need a progressive like Teddy today.

My 10 yr-old daughter is a fan of Teddy Roosevelt and can't get enough information on him. Books written for children bore her but adult biographies are still too much. This "Historic Photo" review gives her (and us!) interesting and new information on Teddy's life along with pictures that she can see what life was like "in the olden days."
