Never has there been a president much less content material to sit down nonetheless in the back of a table than Theodore Roosevelt. once we photograph him, he is on horseback or status at a cliff’s area or dressed for safari. And Roosevelt used to be greater than simply an adventurer—he was once additionally a naturalist and campaigner for conservation. His love of the outdoors international started at an early age and was once pushed by way of a necessity to not easily discover nature yet to be actively keen on the outdoors—to be within the field. As Michael R. Canfield finds in Theodore Roosevelt within the Field, all through his lifestyles Roosevelt continuously took to the sector as a naturalist, hunter, author, soldier, and conservationist, and it really is within the box the place his ardour for technology and nature, his trust within the manly, “strenuous life,” and his force for empire all got here together.


Drawing greatly on Roosevelt’s box notebooks, diaries, and letters, Canfield takes readers into the sector on adventures along him.  From Roosevelt’s early formative years observations of ants to his notes on ornithology as undefined, Canfield exhibits how Roosevelt’s quest for wisdom coincided together with his curiosity within the open air.
