"Walk softly and carry a big stick..!" - Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States Of America. Truly a towering figure of his time and for the ages.

A man's man - up front, honest to a near fault, courageous in all circumstances, yet humble in his many visionary achievements such as the building of the Panama Canal, the national parks, etc.

A more perfect example of what every red blooded American boy growing up should strive to become into adulthood - taking his place at the head of his eventual family, fearing & obeying The Lord God, and serving his fellow man and country faithfully during his alloted time here on earth.

Oh - where have such men of his sterling calibre and great stature gone..?!! And the trumpets sounded on mass for Theodore Roosevelt on the other side.

I recently finished reading RL Wilson's book titled Theodore Roosevelt,Hunter and Conservationist which I highly recommend...these videos and slide show are icing on the cake for my Roosevelt experiences. Thanks for posting

Hi JM, the mounts are at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, in Washington, DC, but only TR's white rhino is on display: http://bit.ly/9EQ7gj

Congratulations OL and Michael Shea this is the best article I have ever read since visiting the website. TR was truely an Icon of conservation and getting to remotely know one of his friends like Selous has been a pleasurable read. Thank you for publishing it here.
