Bully! is a picture album like no other: a treasure trove of political cartoons celebrating our national love affair with Theodore Roosevelt—a gigantic figure from the past, beloved and admired by the American people, then and now.”
—Daniel Ruddy, author of Theodore Roosevelt’s History of the United States
