Reviews

Praise for the Biographies of Edmund Morris

The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize "One of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment."--The New York Times Book Review

"A towering biography."--Time

Theodore Rex

"A masterpiece . . . A great president has finally found a great biographer."--The Washington Post

"As a literary work on Theodore Roosevelt, it is unlikely ever to be surpassed. It is one of the great histories of the American presidency, worthy of being on a shelf alongside Henry Adams's volumes on Jefferson and Madison."--The Times Literary Supplement

Colonel Roosevelt "Monumental . . . Morris is a stylish storyteller with an irresistible subject."--The New York Times Book Review "Hair-raising . . . awe-inspiring . . . a worthy close to a trilogy sure to be regarded as one of the best studies not just of any president, but of any American."--San Francisco Chronicle
