    review ☆ Mornings on Horseback Mornings on HorsebackA satisfying and well written portrait of Roosevelt’s youth It’s up to the reader to make the linkages between his origins and him as President That’s the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars For what McCullough intends it was very satisfying to me My intention was not to write a biography of him What intrigued me was how he came to be There were pieces of the puzzle that fascinated me—his childhood battle with asthma for example his beautiful southern mother the adoration he had for his father What who were involved in the forming of all that energy and persistence How much of him was playacting or a composite of borrowing from others who were important to him The book would end when I thought he was formed as a person at whatever age that happ

    review ☆ Mornings on Horseback Mornings on HorsebackOK Here's my definition of fanatic After just finishing a wonderful extended look at Teddy Roosevelt post presidency Colonel Roosevelt reviewed here and given 5 Stars last month; I went back and re read David McCullough's excellent biography of Teddy's family history and his early years Don't let anyone convince you that nurture isn't a powerful contributor to who we are Not the exclusive contributor Teddy's own brother Elliot bears witness t

    review ☆ Mornings on Horseback Mornings on HorsebackI love David McCullough He writes books about things you did not know that you needed to know “Mornings on Horseback” is yet another example of a book about a subject matter I thought I would have no interest in but I was very wrongThis text is about Teddy Roosevelt’s immediate family and his upbringing It ends in the mid 1880s right after his second marriage He is all of 28 years old and the “famous” aspects of his life are not even addressed Moreover it is utterly absorbing reading It is also a bit of a social history on American Victorian life and is endlessly insightful on that subjectMcCullough makes it very clear that our immediate family are some of the biggest influences on who we are to become and Teddy’s paren

    review ☆ Mornings on Horseback Mornings on HorsebackA biography covering the early life of Theodore Roosevelt from his childhood through his years as a Dakota rancher this book is also a fascinating account of the entire colorful Roosevelt family and the times in which they lived I could hardly put it down I especially loved the way the author was able to draw such vivid pictures of this dynamic man Roosevelt reading Anna Karenina while guarding thieves at gunpointin horseback and dressed in full dude outfit telling his cowboys to hasten forward uickly there back east in top hat and proper coat entering his house at full speed and bounding halfway up the staircase before the front door slams shut behind him I found myself inspired by Roosevelt's passionate curiosity and commitment to the strenuous life

    review ☆ Mornings on Horseback Mornings on HorsebackMy 4th book on Teddy Roosevelt I just can't uit this guy This book was okay but probably could have been called White Privilege The Book instead It does give the reader a good idea about Teddy's upbringing and his family He definitely had some tragedies in his life His first wife and his mother died within hours of each other He also struggled with asthma as a child But most of his early life was that of a filthy rich little kid getting to go on outrageous adventures It's no wonder he turned out the way he did after traveling literally around the world as a young boy Very little political here but I don't think that's what McCullough was going for Much like his work on Truman McCullough left me a bit cold
