Teddy Roosevelt--The Badlands to Brazil: Adventures of a President

Course Description

This lecture will focus on two chapters from TR's life. The first is about how a rich city kid from New York became a ranch hand in the Dakotas, turning him into a cowboy/outdoorsman/conservationist in the process. The second will recount the expedition down an un-named tributary of the Amazon River in dugout canoes that nearly cost him his life. It is hoped that a discussion can follow. References for further reading will be provided.
