Michael F. Blake, The Cowboy President: The American West and the Making of Theodore Roosevelt

Sunday, December 9

2 p.m.

Included with admission; free for members

Author Michael Blake discusses his book, The Cowboy President. Roosevelt’s time in the West helped him recover from an overwhelming personal loss, but, more importantly, transformed him into the man etched onto Mount Rushmore – a man regarded by many as one of top five Presidents in American history. Blake’s book details how the Western landscape, people, and code of honor influenced Roosevelt in his later years. Space is limited. Book-signing following talk; limited quantity of books available for purchase in the museum shop.
