Teddy Roosevelt's California Trip in 1903
This week we travel outside of Orange County to Yosemite National Park and relive a three-day camping trip that changed American history.
My guest is Huntington Beach resident and author Chris Epting, who discusses his latest book "Teddy Roosevelt in California; The Whistle Stop Tour That Changed America."
The book chronicles Roosevelt's 1903 trip to California and his camping excursion with conservationist John Muir. A lover of the rugged outdoors, Roosevelt was humbled and impressed by the experience, which proved to be one of the most important sojourns in presidential history.
