WINNER: Army Historical Foundation Distinguished Writing Award; New Mexico-Arizona Book Award; and Colorado Book Award
The now-legendary Rough Riders were a volunteer regiment recruited in 1898 to help drive the Spaniards out of Cuba. Drawn from AmericaA??s southwestern territories and led by the irrepressible Theodore Roosevelt, these men included not only cowboys and other Westerners, but also several Ivy Leaguers and clubmen, many of them friends of A??TR.A? Roosevelt and his men quickly came to symbolize American ruggedness, daring, and individualism. He led them to victory in the famed Battle of San Juan Hill, which made TR a national hero and cemented the Rough RidersA?? iconic place in history.
Now Mark Lee Gardner synthesizes previously unknown primary accountsA??private letters, diaries, and period newspaper reports from public and private archives across the countryA??to breathe fresh life into the Rough Riders and pay tribute to their daring feats and indomitable leader.

"Danny Campbell's deep, gravelly voice is a good match for this account of the most famous regiment of the Spanish-American War. Gardner, who has written a number of works on the Old West, did extensive research to bring to life the story of the 1st Regiment, United States Volunteer Cavalry and the many colorful people who served in it; cowboys, Westerners, Ivy Leaguers, Indians, and others made up the unit. The battle descriptions are gripping as are the portrayals of Theodore Roosevelt, Leonard Wood, "Bucky" O'Neal, and many others. Campbell's clear voice and Midwestern-sounding accent are expressive and deceptively smooth. While no unique voices are provided for quotes or dialogue, the listener is never in doubt as to who is speaking. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
