This week my First Line is from Rough Riders: Theodore Roosevelt, His Cowboy Regiment, and the Immortal Charge Up San Juan Hill by Mark Lee Gardner. I am also cheating a little bit and actually using the LAST lines of the prologue, because I think it sets the book up nicely and I am super excited to read it.
"They share the truth of an experience that only those who were there can truly know. As part of a regiment of southwestern cowpunchers, Oklahoma Indians, Ivy League football stars, and champion polo players, they had faced death boldly and defeated the enemy.
They had been Rough Riders."
