Epigraph
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood ...who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and whoa the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place will never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt.

Book description
He Came West Haunted by death and grief...

IN 1884, a Harvard-educated legislator from New York set off for Dakota Territory. Staggered by the deaths of his mother and wife, on the same tragic night, Teddy Roosevelt was returning to a place he had visited the year before, a place that had struck him with its fierce beauty and its bounty of big game and big opportunity. By the Little Missouri River, Teddy Roosevelt established a ranching empire, and soon stood at the center of a storm..

And on a violent land, he was reborn...

Less than a decade after an Indian rebellion and the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Dakota was being settled by the brave, the ambitious, and the restless. While some men were grabbing power, some were getting away with murder. For Roosevelt, using local cowboys and transplanted Easterners as his ranch hands, this was a place to make his mark, to make a stand and to look a killer in the eyes.And this was a time to bring wild Dakota into the heart of America.
