Featured Article: Theodore Roosevelt Quotes for Your Inner Outdoorsman and Active Citizen


Before taking office as the 26th President of the United States of America, Theodore Roosevelt had already made a name for himself as a historian and an adventurer. He became an archetype of the ultra-masculine frontiersman, while still maintaining his image as an intellectual and a scholar. It is perhaps this particular mélange that made him appeal to the American people who would elect him. Learn more about the man with our collection of quotes.

If you don't mind repetition

It's understandable that the nature of hunting stories makes them repetitive and often predictable, but there's enough varied prose and thoughtfulness here to keep it engaging. Though for someone who's renowned for their charisma and passion, this work of Roosevelt's can come across dry and humorless as he makes clear to illustrate that his experience and knowledge is well above that of the average frontiersman. With that in mind, the narration is downright monotonous, with a distant, gruff lack of emotion. His voice works well for the subject matter, it just needs to be elevated with variation in delivery, I found myself constantly zoning out and having to replay segments. Still enjoyed this very much, and would certainly recommend.
