A Patriotic Pick: February 2021
“Mornings on Horseback: The Story of Theodore Roosevelt” by David McCullough
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge John Danielson, founder of Chartwell Education Group and former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education:
“Mornings on Horseback: The Story of an Extraordinary Family, a Vanished Way of Life, and the Unique Child Who Became Theodore Roosevelt” by David McCullough. This National Book Award-winning biography chronicles the early years of the future president, from the physical frailties that nearly claimed him to the remarkable, exuberant parents and siblings who helped him embrace — and ultimately triumph over — the adversity he faced.
Patriotic Picks is a monthly feature in partnership with the Washington Independent Review of Books.
