About this title:

Synopsis: This little volume really needs no introduction; the two sketches of which it is made explain and, I hope, justify themselves. But there is one phase of the President's many-sided character upon which I should like to lay special emphasis, namely, his natural history bent and knowledge. Amid all his absorbing interests and masterful activities in other fields, his interest and his authority in practical natural history are by no means at least. I long ago had very direct proof of this statement. In some of my English sketches, following a visit to that island in 1882, I had, rather by implication than by positive statement, inclined to the opinion that the European forms of animal life were, as a rule, larger and more hardy and prolific than the corresponding forms in this country. Roosevelt could not let this statement or suggestion go unchallenged, and the letter which I received from him in 1892, touching these things, is of double interest at this time, as showing one phase of his radical Americanism, while it exhibits him as a thoroughgoing naturalist.

--John Burroughs (1907)--

Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) was the 26th President of the United States (1901-1909). A hero of the Spanish-American War, he served as governor of New York (1899-1900) and was U.S. Vice President (1901) under William McKinley. He Won the 1906 Nobel Peace Prize for his mediation in the Russo-Japanese War.

"John is so calm, so poised, so much at home with himself, so much a familiar spirit of the forests," wrote Walt Whitman of his friend, the naturalist and writer John Burroughs. "He is a child of the woods, fields, hills -- native to them in a rare sense (in a sense almost a miracle)."

About the Author: JOHN BURROUGHS, USAF, Ret., served twenty-seven years in active and reserve duty in the US Air Force. He is the co-author of" Encounter in Rendlesham Forest." He is currently a lecturer and presenter on the Rendlesham Forest Incident and other related events.
