A motley crew of cowboys and Ivy-League scholars, Native Americans and African Americans, the Rough Riders stampeded into the Spanish-American War in 1898. Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, who organized the regiment, recounts the First United States Volunteer Cavalry's dashing escapades in this rousing memoir.
The Rough Riders not only is an excellent work of history; it also recounts events that - soon after they occurred - would have a profound impact on history. Roosevelt returned from Cuba a national hero, and the multiple printings of this book spread and sustained that image.
