Theodore Roosevelt demonstrated his interest in nature as a youth with his first publication, Summer Birds of the Adirondacks, 1877, when he was 12. Thus began his obsession with wildlife, one of Roosevelt's driving forces leading him to his eventual preservation accomplishments. Today we see TR's journey from a young boy with a fascination for wildlife to a president who began the conservation movement and is today an exemplar of stewardship.

"It is an incalculable added pleasure to anyone's sum of happiness if he or she grows to know, even slightly or imperfectly, how to read the wonderbook of nature."--Theodore Roosevelt
