Author Michael Blake on “The Cowboy President: The American West and the Making of Theodore Roosevelt”

February 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Author Michael Blake discusses his book, The Cowboy President: The American West and the Making of Theodore Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt’s time spent in the Western Dakota Territory helped him recover from an overwhelming personal loss, but more importantly, it transformed him into the man etched onto Mount Rushmore, a man who is still rated as one of the top five Presidents in American history. Unlike other Roosevelt biographies, The Cowboy President details how the land, the people and the Western code of honor had an enormous impact on Theodore and how this experience influenced him in his later years.

Included with paid Museum admission (free for Museum Members), 11 a.m., Cultural Crossroads Learning Center.
