Patriotic Pick for February 2021
“Mornings on Horseback” by David McCullough
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge John Danielson, founder of Chartwell Education Group and former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education:
“Mornings on Horseback: The Story of an Extraordinary Family, a Vanished Way of Life, and the Unique Child Who Became Theodore Roosevelt” by David McCullough. This National Book Award-winning biography chronicles the early years of the future president, from the physical frailties that nearly claimed him to the remarkable, exuberant parents and siblings who helped him embrace — and ultimately triumph over — the adversity he faced.
Patriotic Picks is a monthly feature in partnership with the Washington Independent Review of Books.
