Teddy Roosevelt is one of my favorite historical figures.

And:

"The Historical Bigfoot" by Chad Arment

which is a collection of old newspaper articles from the late 1700's to the early 1900's. It's pretty interesting, and at times funny. Lots of newspapers of the period made up stories to sell papers, and many folks were afraid of the unknown creatures of the unexplored interior of the continent.

Next on the list:

"Lost + Found: Finding Myself By Getting Lost in an Affair" by David Trotter
This one should hit close to home, and I am looking forward to it!
Have you read the Edmund Morris trilogy of TR books? The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt is an incredible book. I was able to snag an autographed copy of Colonel Roosevelt via the Theodore Roosevelt Association. I haven't read it as of yet.
