Review: Theodore Roosevelt was born into a family with privilege and money. His love for the outdoors drove him to being a rancher in the Dakota Territory, an adventurer, and a Rough Rider. He also had a strong drive for public service. He not only ran for public office, he became known for stopping corruption in the public services. When he became President, he continued to work against corruption by breaking up powerful monopolies. His passion to preserve the environment showed in his significant conservation efforts.
