Theodore Roosevelt Abroad free pdf In a life full of momentous episodes, Theodore Roosevelt's fifteen-month post-presidential odyssey to Africa and Europe has never been given its due place. In 1909 and 1910, fresh from the presidency, Rooosvelt embarked on a grand expedition that fulfilled a long-held dream for the hunter-naturalist. Moving from British East Africa to Egypt to the European continent, Roosevelt hunted elephants and rhinos, parlayed with mercenaries and tribal kings, and observed the changes wrought by European colonialism. Along with his rifles, Roosevelt also brought his bully pulpit, lecturing diplomats and politicians on the exertions required to maintain the burden of empire. In this engaging narrative, J. Lee Thompson traces Roosevelt's breathtaking exploits as well as his periodic descents into doubt and disillusionment. A tale of daring adventure, international celebrity, friendship lost, and political legacies transformed, this is the first full account of a critical episode in the life of an American icon.
