Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough
Copies available at Aitkin Library

Join us November 1st to discuss ‘Mornings on Horseback,’ the National Book Award Winning biography of our most interesting president. Theodore Roosevelt is loved and hated on both the Right and the Left for his Progressive policies and larger than life personality.

‘Mornings…’ explores his formative years as he metamorphosized from a sickly boy to a hardened Rough-Rider. TR embodies the glory and contradiction that are America. To understand him is to understand America and understand ourselves.
