River of Doubt, Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey

On the heels of his failed bid for re-election, Roosevelt and his 14-year-old son Kermit journeyed on an ill-repaired, calamitous expedtion with Brazilian explorer Candido Rondon to the uncharted River of Darkness. Millard captures the suspense and the setting in vivid detail. Recommended by Tahir Shah.

Author: Candice Millard

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"Candice Millard's book chronicles the expedition of Theodore Roosevelt down one of Amazon's last unexplored tributaries in 1914-the River of Doubt. The 400-mile river trip tested every ounce of the ex-president's intellect, courage, and physical stamina. Of course when you are on the Natural Habitat trip in the Amazon, you are not enduring hardships at all, but it certainly will make you appreciate your trip even more."
- Wendy Klausner
