Summary

Theodore Roosevelt did more to conserve America's natural resources than any other U.S. president before him. As one of the most accomplished and most colorful characters to ever serve as president, Roosevelt was admired for being a war hero, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, a rancher, and a fearless champion of the working class. He was an avid outdoorsman and hunter and had a deep appreciation for nature. After he became president in 1901, he placed 230 million acres of American wilderness under government protection and established new laws that would limit the use of resources within these lands. In this brand-new volume, learn how Theodore Roosevelt had the foresight to protect America's natural resources and the impact that decision has had on the America of today.
