This National Book Award winner by Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough shows how sickly "Teedie" becomes the robust, energetic Teddy Roosevelt. Born in 1858, Teddy finds his priviledged Manhattan family isn't immune to pain and sorrow. Potts disease disables his older sister, and epilepsy haunts his brother. Crippled by deadly asthma, Teddy soon learns to savor each precious moment. And the lessons he learns from his close-knit clan sustain him through the agonizing death of his beloved father and the loss of both his wife and mother-on the same day.
