The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey
by Candice Millard [B R67m]

In 1913, Theodore Roosevelt, his son Kermit, a physician and a Brazilian geographer, among others, headed down an unmapped tributary of the Amazon. As always, the fearless Roosevelt was after adventure. This time, however, it almost killed him. Equal parts history, geography, ethnography, anthropology, biography and natural resources, River of Doubt tells of a harrowing journey surmounting starvation, piranhas and even murder. The writer, Candice Millard, is a former writer and editor for National Geographic and lives in Kansas City.
