Written in the late nineteenth century and first published in Harper's Round Table magazine in 1896, this collection of articles details turn-of-the-century America's rugged wilderness. Good Hunting is an engaging read for those whose interests lie in hunting sports, and nature. Roosevelt, being the first president to begin many of the national park conservation programs in twentieth-century America, was a lover of the outdoors, and his writings are filled with notations and observations of the lands that he explored. From hunting elks, wolves, and bucks, Roosevelt provides stunning insight into some of northwestern America's most well-known inhabitants. Good Hunting is a fascinating historical portal through which we can view a celebrated sportsman, president, and keen observer of the outdoors. The seven chapters in this book range from classic hunting articles, memorable anecdotes from other outdoorsmen, and even a detailed piece on the specifics of ranching a topic of much interest at the turn of the century. This is a classic read for anyone wanting to learn more about a man who was so loved by a country, and to escape to the America of yesteryear.

President, environmentalist, big game hunter, war hero, trust buster, father of the modern American navy, builder of the Panama Canal, Nobel Peace Prize winner-Teddy Roosevelt remains a commanding and intriguing figure of American history. This handsome book includes approximately 100 of the most memorable quotes of this prolific writer and orator.
Teddy Roosevelt is the only president in history to deliver a ninety-minute speech directly after being shot in the chest. He's a Nobel Prize recipient, a Harvard graduate, and he was the youngest President in history to be inaugurated into office. Roosevelt's force took America by storm in the early twentieth century, and he is regarded as one of the finest leaders ever to take office. His wisdom even earned him a spot in Mount Rushmore, which has immortalized him along with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. As a sickly child, Roosevelt was home-schooled his entire life until enrolling at Harvard University, where he studied biology. A year after graduating, he began his political career as the New York City police commissioner, and later as a member of the New York State Assembly, where he led the reform division of the GOP. In the time since his presidency, Roosevelt's bravery has inspired generations of Americans. "A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards." Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more.

In 1914, with the well-wishes of the Brazilian government, Theodore Roosevelt, ex-president of the United States; his son, Kermit; and Colonel Rondon travel to South America on a quest to course the River of Doubt. While in Brazil, Theodore is also tasked with a "zoogeographic reconnaissance" of the local wilderness for the archives of the Natural History Museum of New York. In addition to the perils of the incredibly difficult and dangerous terrain, the river was nicknamed "The River of Death" as a testament to its ferocious rapids. Covering a previously undocumented area of South America, this expedition would be a momentous undertaking and fraught with danger. The expedition, officially named Expedicao Scientific Roosevelt-Rondon, was not without incident; men were lost, a cannibalistic tribe tracked the group, and at one point Roosevelt contracted flesh-eating bacteria. In the end though, the Roosevelt-Rondon expedition was a success, and the River of Doubt was renamed the Rio Roosevelt in his honor. Written by a city-born boy who grew up to be a true explorer and leader, Roosevelt's Through the Brazilian Wilderness is a unique and important part of history, and it is indicative of the ex-president's true wanderlust and bravery. Candid black-and-white photos from the expedition fill the pages, adding further dimensions to this remarkable journey. Through the Brazilian Wilderness is an engaging must-read for historians, Roosevelt fans, and modern-day explorers alike.

A phrase has come into the Zeitgeist - calling people the "Trump of their field." Elon Musk is the Trump of business. Many leaders still do not know how to react to President Trump; to his decision to control immigration; 3+% economic growth and, especially, to the absolutely justified desire to implement a pro-US policy. Europe has been awakened from its somnolence by the vigor and determination with which US President Donald Trump has changed the face of America and indeed, the entire world. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, mainland Europe has been stuck in the old politics of the 20th century. The annihilation of the European Socialists in the European Parliament and the European Council (where they only count a handful of heads of state) is birthing a new European era. Europe, like the rest of the world, needs Trump in order to re-learn how to do politics, instead of winding endless tales from which no one understands anything, and no one takes any firm decisions. The Trump of America must lead the world in uniting Western Civilization against an onslaught of weak, feeble centrists and leftists at home and abroad. Europe needs Trump in order to wake up from its zealous overconfidence in its capacity to assimilate millions of non-Europeans into its cultures. The world also needs Trump and America to learn the value of the nation state and policies based on the community called the "nation." Every nation in the world needs a president or prime minister like Donald Trump - pushing their nation towards its greater destiny. Every nation needs presidents that puts their nation first and fights for the interests of those who voted for them! Trump's World shows how Trump has bent the arc of modern history in the US and how other leaders will do the same across the world as popular sovereignists win the day.

Speak softly and carry a big stick you will go far. If a man continually blusters, if he lacks civility, a big stick will not save him from trouble; and neither will speaking softly avail, if back of the softness there does not lie strength, power. on the Big Stick
We are, as a whole, still in that low state of civilization where we do not understand that it is also vandalism wantonly to destroy or to permit the destruction of what is beautiful in nature, whether it be a cliff, a forest, or a species of mammal or bird. Here in the United States we turn our rivers and streams into sewers and dumping-grounds, we pollute the air, we destroy forests, and exterminate fishes, birds and mammals not to speak of vulgarizing charming landscapes with hideous advertisements. But at last it looks as if our people were awakening. on Natural Resources
The public life of Theodore Roosevelt (1858 1919) was marked by his service as the twenty-sixth President of the United States, Vice President, Governor of New York State, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, U.S. Civil Service Commissioner, President of the New York City Police Commission, and New York State Assemblyman. In his life outside of government he was famous as an author, naturalist, rancher, big game hunter, and explorer. The twentieth century would become known as the American Century, and it was Theodore Roosevelt, through his foreign policy, who ushered the United States into the ranks of the world's great powers. In domestic affairs, he used his presidential powers to level the playing field between capital and labor, to protect consumers, and to establish a conservation program that was far-sighted and comprehensive, covering the nation's natural resources, its wilderness areas, its endangered species, its scenic beauty, and the cultural artifacts of its indigenous peoples.
Distilled from Roosevelt s voluminous writings and speeches, In the Words of Theodore Roosevelt is a discerning collection of quotations by this American icon who continues to inspire and captivate an extraordinary array of twenty-first-century Americans. Carefully selected and organized by topic by Patricia O Toole, these quotations reflect the vast range of Roosevelt s interests, the depth of his wisdom, his almost superhuman energy, and his directness. Many of the issues that Roosevelt addressed from America s international role to the environment remain pressing concerns today, giving his century-old words remarkable currency. This singular collection of quotations enhanced by O Toole s illuminating introductory essay, notes on biographical and historical context, and bibliographies of Roosevelt s writings is a trove for writers, teachers, students, and all who recognize Theodore Roosevelt s unique role in U.S. history."
