Theodore Roosevelt, a New York aristocrat who ventured into the American West to seek authentic frontier experience and the strenuous life, traveled to western Dakota Territory in 1883 to kill his first buffalo. He got his buffalo, but he also fell in love with the badlands of what is now North Dakota.

This book contains 70 stories, many set in Dakota Territory, about Roosevelt's life as an adventurer, politician, and man of letters, lavishly illustrated with more than 100 photographs, some never previously published.
