Book Excerpt: 
. . .President of the United States, and I could not disappoint them. They may never have another chance. What a deep impression such things make when we are young!"


At some point in the Dakotas we picked up the former foreman of his ranch, and another cowboy friend of the old days, and they rode with the President in his private car for several hours. He was as happy with them as a schoolboy ever was in meeting old chums. He beamed with delight all over. The life which those men represented, and of which he had himself once formed a part, meant so much to him; it had entered into the very marrow of his[Pg 8] being, and I could see the joy of it all shining in his face as he sat and lived parts of it over again with those men that day. He bubbled with laughter continually. The men, I thought, seemed a little embarrassed by his open-handed cordiality and good-fellowship. He himself evidently wanted to forget the present, and to live only in the memo. . . Read More

Great story about Prez Roosevelt's unprecedented trip to Yosemite to visit John Muir. I love the interesting angle and the voice of the president is quite fun. As he would say, "Bully!"

This book by Burroughs certainly was mythopoeic towards Theodore Roosevelt. But a good read none the less.

Written and published during TR's lifetime, this book gives modern readers a different view of a well-known president. His love of nature was extraordinary, matched only by his knowledge of it. A quick read that lets readers see the man rather than the politician.

Two short journals of John Burrough's time with Roosevelt. The first covers a two-week stay in Yellowstone -- in the snow. The second an afternoon visit at the President's home in NY. Both emphasize Roosevelt's interest in and knowledge of natural history.

A wonderful book by the best of America's forgotten writers. Burroughs is a great as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Adams, or Mark Twain
