As spending the majority of his life teaching other students at the University of Los Angles California the importance of history, and how it plays an important role in all of are lives, Mowry has became a superb author and thinker. He grew up in a suburb near Los Angels, and also lived out his day final days there. Ever since Mowry was a young boy it seems he has always had a very profound intrest in learning American history. Mowry graduated at the top of his High School class.The motive Mowry decided to write this book is because: he respected Roosevelt very highly, and wanted the public to see for them self's on paper what great accomplishment Roosevelt did while he was in office. He figured if he's going to teach UCLA students the importance of Roosevelt's era, why not educate and inform the general public also?.The structure Of the book The Era Of Theodore Roosevelt was written such as a time table from 1900-1912. Talking about many of Roosevelt's masterstroke accomplishments in order. Starting Theodore was interested in running for the 1900 presidential election, but the Republican party wasn't ready to put a 42 year old President into office.
