A diligent and skilled writer, Theodore Roosevelt wrote on a wide range of topics and genres, including history, autobiography, nature, hunting, memoirs, and editorials. In each of his works, the subject dictated the style, ranging from strong and exuberant to introspective and observant. In addition to his 47 published books, Roosevelt is estimated to have written more than 150,000 letters. His best known works include The Naval War of 1812 (1882), Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail (1888), The Wilderness Hunter (18930, The Rough Riders (1899), and African Game Trails (1910).
