Theodore Roosevelt was a sickly child who found relief in the great outdoors and then preserved it for future generations as our 26th President.  He  always loved a good challenge; personal health, running a ranch, and fighting off the reckless use of our nation’s most impressive wild lands.  It took a lot of political capital to make it happen, and our beautiful national parks exist today because of his overwhelming determination.
The boundless energy of Theodore Roosevelt and how he worked to save America’s greatest natural treasures for generations to come, is on this episode of American POTUS.
