“When you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” 

– Theodore Roosevelt

 

In 1898, as the Spanish-American War was escalating, Theodore Roosevelt assembled an improbable regiment of Ivy Leaguers, cowboys, Native Americans, African Americans, and Western Territory land speculators. This group of men, which became known as the Rough Riders, trained for four weeks in the Texas desert, and then set sail for Cuba. Over the course of the summer, Roosevelt’s Rough Riders fought valiantly, and sometimes recklessly, in the Cuban foothills, incurring casualties at a far greater rate than the Spanish.

 

The Rough Riders” was published to instant acclaim in 1899, originally published in six installments by Scribner. This edition is important because it includes the original illustrations, many of which were not published in the first book edition. It also includes other smaller works such as the letters of Robert Louis Stevenson, an account of Cuba by Leonard Wood, and other works by Richard Harding Davis, Henry James, Henry van Dyke, Edith Wharton, John Chandler Harris, Robert Shackleton, and Cyrus Townsend Brady.
