Theodore Roosevelt noted, “My object in writing these books was not only to give a full account of the chase of every kind of big game proper to the United States, but also where possible to touch on their life histories… I write for my fellow ranchmen and fellow hunters, and for the young men of America, in whose veins the red blood of life runs lustily, and who joy in the strenuous pleasure that comes only as the prize of toil and exposure in the open.” “Midway through Roosevelt’s third term [in the New York State Assembly] in 1884, his wife died after giving birth to a daughter. He immersed himself in legislative matters to the end of the session, then sought solace on his ranch in western Dakota—‘a land of vast silent spaces, a place of grim beauty… For a while the 25-year-old widower considered a life of ranching, hunting, and writing” (ANB).
