Best history book I have read in the last 10 years! I highly recommend it. Readers owe it to their education to buy this book and keep it permanently in their library. We either face history, accept and learn from it or we ignore it. Do not ignore the message in this book. It will stay with you for a long time.

talks to how Teddy R. was an extreme colonist. A theory at the time is our continental land has now been established, we need to gain territory beyond the continent to have a market for goods.

Also, spoke to his presidential move to save lands for national parks.
