Theodore Roosevelt stands out as one of the most exceptional leaders in American history. He was a devoted husband and father, a politician, a soldier, a war hero, a journalsit, an editor, a cattle rancher, a scientist, an historian, a writer, an athlete, a hunter, and a diplomat. While the list of his exploits seems imposing, it was his passionate commitment to what he believed was right and good and true that was dynamically compelling
George Grant is the author of more than five dozen books, serves as pastor of Parish Presbyterian Church, and is the founder of King's Meadow Study Center, the Chalmers Fund, New College Franklin, the Comenius School, and Franklin Classical School.
