Item description for The Letters and Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons (Profiles in Fatherhood) by Douglas W. Phillips...
Overview Roosevelt adored his children, four of whom were boys, each of whom he was intent on turning into a man of action. He once commented that his own father was the greatest man he ever knew. His commitment to being the same example for his sons was evident not only in the remarkable globe-trotting adventures on which they accompanied him, but also in the copious letters that he wrote to them, many of which communicated deep truths about manhood, Christianity, and courage. The Letters & Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons contains some of the most interesting letters and lessons that T.R. wrote to his boys and ably demonstrates how fathers can embrace with vigor their charge to raise up manly sons.

To better know the man Apr 11, 2005
It is easy to take potshots at historical figures as long as they remain impersonal. There are some who would like to call TR a racist or imperialist or some other catchphrase. In The Letters and Lessons of Theodore Roosevelt for his Sons, however, you must get to know the person. Even if you don't agree with everything he did historically, you come away with a sense of who the person was and what his priorities, personality, and sense of honor and responsibility were all about. I don't claim to be unbiased, being a great admirer of the man. The letters only reaffirmed what I believed and made me respect the man all the more. The only minor thing that annoyed me about the book was the editor's mention in the foreword about the "Christian" character of Roosevelt's stances. Those concepts belong to all people of honor, and are not attached to any given religious tradition.
