A Rough Ride to Albany: Teddy Runs for Governor. by John A. Corry

Just as essential to Theodore Roosevelts accession to the Presidency as his charge up San Juan Hill was his election as Governor of New York four months later. A defeat would have seriously set back & perhaps even destroyed his chances to gain the White House. Yet, until a Rough Ridge To Albany, no book has devoted itself primarily to that hard fought uphill campaign, which he barely won only after a series of energetic whistle stop tours in which he displayed for the first time a unique power to stir audiences that has rarely been seen in American politics. The book also describes how Roosevelt had to balance his commitment to reform with the positions of New Yorks Republican leadership, which did not share many of his priorities. It thus provides lessons that are just as relevant today as they were more than one hundred years ago. A ROUGH RIDE TO ALBANY is must reading for anyone who is fascinated by the career of Theodore Roosevelt or by the details of a dramatic political campaign that helped set the course of Twentieth Century American history.
