Publisher's Summary

Theodore Roosevelt Jr., (1858-1919), 26th president of the United States, from 1901 to 1909, was also a conservationist, naturalist, and writer. From 1884 to 1886, he established his ranch in Dakota Territory, which involved much hardship and toil. Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail - published in 1888 - is the account of his labors and adventures as a cowboy, hunter, herder, and even a stint as a deputy sheriff. The narrative comes alive with engaging descriptions of the inhabitants of the Badlands: the buffalo hunters, Indians, cowboys, and mountain men, as well as the changing environment as the area became more populated in that period.

Poor Pronunciation

Roosevelt’s story is interesting and ties closely to familiar history. The narrator pronounced quite a few words incorrectly. Examples: butte is frequently pronounced “but” Helena is pronounced “hull-n-a” Coeur D’Alene should be pronounced kore-duh-LANE These errors were annoying.

Returning

Very poor production. Mispronounced words, unnecessary pauses, poor sound quality. Hard to go wrong with T. Rosevelt but this does.

Narrator

Narrator mispronounced the names of many locations. An example would be consistently vocalizing the s at the end of Arkansas.
