This book examines the ties between the American government, athletic culture, physical fitness, and sports within the first decade of the 20th century, partly due to Theodore 'TR' Roosevelt/5(23).   The strenuous life is one of initiative, of hard work, of sacrifice, of perseverance, and ultimately a life rewarded by self-satisfaction in a job well done. This book is inspiring as a stand-alone read, but I highly recommend you read it in conjunction with TR’s “Autobiography," as it adds an extra level of insight to both works/5(70). Mornings on Horseback: The Story of an Extraordinary Family, a Vanished Way of Life, and the Unique Child Who Became Theodore Roosevelt is the brilliant biography of the young Theodore Roosevelt.
