Excerpt from Roosevelt's Writings: Selections From the Writings of Theodore Roosevelt

Americanism can best be studied concretely through the careers of great Americans. For such a purpose few lives will be more useful than that of Roosevelt. If this book stimulates among the present and future generations of young Americans an interest in this great man's life and leadership and in his ideals for democracy practically applied, it will have fulfilled my purpose.

My especial thanks are due to Mrs. Edith Carow Roosevelt for permission to use generously material from Theodore Roosevelt, An Autobiography, Without which this book would have been incomplete.
