Introduction to James W. Foley's The Voices of Song

Roosevelt, Theodore, 1858-1919
Theodore Roosevelt recalls his time ranching in North Dakota and his acquaintance with Mr. Foley. He relates a story about run-away horses in which the poet played a part, confirming that Foley writes his "Western sketches" not out of books but from his own experiences.
