Description
A senior editor at National Wildlife magazine and author of In the Shadow of Wounded Knee, Roger Di Silvestro here chronicles the turbulent, profoundly formative years that Theodore Roosevelt spent as a rancher. Following the deaths of his wife and mother on Valentine's Day in 1884, the young Harvard-educated politician left New York for the Badlands of Dakota Territory. The era saw the end of the Old West, a turning point in the cattle industry, and major changes in America's attitudes toward wildlife and wild places, and Di Silvestro argues that Roosevelt's experiences in Dakota both instilled his love of conservation and also fostered the rough-and-tumble reputation that became central to his public persona.
