Subject: Re: [tr-m] What are the top five must read books about Theodore Roosevelt?
To: tr-m@yahoogroups.com


Greetings,
In my humble opinion, best TR books: the Morris trilogy, Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough, River of Doubt by Candice Millard, I Rose Like a Rocket by Paul Grondahl or Commissioner Roosevelt by H.Paul Jeffers (the incorruptible TR!), Wilderness Warrior by Douglas Brinkley and A Bully Father: Theodore Roosevelt's Letters to His Children. 
Okay, that's 6 (or 7) but hey, hard to limit on TR!
Hope that contributes.

Dear tr-m group members,
What do you consider the top five books ABOUT Theodore Roosevelt you believe any self-proclaimed TR fan must read including multiple volume sets as one book (excluding Morris' three volumes because these clearly would be included in everyone's list)?
Plus, what are your top five favorite books WRITTEN by Theodore Roosevelt?
Although I own probably 75 books by and about TR, I have the perception that I have NOT read the most essential TR books and want to make sure I have.

All the best,
John Olsen
