Theodore Roosevelt is rightly remembered as a champion of the American wilderness. This audiobook chronicles the author's journey through the lands that most inspired the president. Fred Sanders offers a smooth, even narration. There is reverence in his tone when delivering descriptions of the natural world and deep emotion when rendering the author's pleas for a renewed national commitment to conservation. Sanders rightly avoids trying to emulate T.R.'s voice in direct quotations. The biggest problem is with the book itself. The author can't decide whether the work should be a history of conservation, a personal travelogue, or an environmental call to action. Its various facets don't meld all that well, and listeners may be left puzzling about the true purpose of the book. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
