Description of this Book

Bully! One of America's most beloved presidents comes to life in this comprehensive, unique biography illustrated by more than 250 period cartoons. Theodore Roosevelt, adored for everything from his much-caricatured teeth and glasses to his almost childlike exuberance and boundless energy, as well as his astounding achievements, captivated Americans of his day--and the cartoonists who immortalized him in their drawings. In Bully! The Life and Times of Theodore Roosevelt, author and cartoonist Rick Marschall tells Roosevelt's story, using words and colorful images alike. Incorporating hundreds of vintage illustrations, Bully! captures Roosevelt's remarkable life and incredible accomplishments as no other biography has. In Bully! you will read and see why this man continues to capture the imaginations of Americans and those who love America. You will learn: Why World War I might never have happened if Roosevelt had won the presidency for a third term How TR the Rough Rider inspired his men How Roosevelt drove the building of the Panama Canal through almost insuperable obstacles Why his strong (but today underreported) Christian faith directed his every action Why the cowboy Roosevelt was the most intellectual president America has ever had Why his foreign policy of speaking softly and carrying a big stick was so successful How the Progressive Roosevelt was actually a Conservative

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Bully! <br> Bully! is a picture album like no other: a treasure trove of political cartoons celebrating our national love affair with Theodore Roosevelt--a gigantic figure from the past, beloved and admired by the American people, then and now. <br>--Daniel Ruddy, author of Theodore Roosevelt's History of the United States <br> Theodore Roosevelt was the darling of the caricaturists and cartoonists of the golden age of that art form, as this book so well illustrates. These artists' descendants today long for another Theodore Roosevelt--and they aren't the only ones. <br>--Tweed Roosevelt, President of the Theodore Roosevelt Association, and great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt <br> If anyone needs proof that cartoons provide the most fun food for thought for the American political system--open up Rick Marschall's Bully! and start feasting. Great cartoons, forgotten masters of cartooning, brilliant discussion of issues, and a colorful American hero. Bully
