Henry Cabot Lodge met Theodore Roosevelt when the two young men first came to Washington D.C. Both men eventually were to go on to have stellar careers and leave marks on American history.
Just a few years after they met, they co-wrote this collection of historical profiles and vignettes. It was their favorite project, and it remained much so throughout their lives. Ted, the firstborn of Roosevelt’s brood, asserts: “This book not only provides portraits of a fistful of American heroes, it portrays the way a collaborative friendship can shape the destiny of a nation.”
