River of Doubt by Candice Millard
Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey
The 26th U.S. president, failing re-election, goes on an adventure that nearly kills him. In an admirable debut, historian and National Geographic contributor Candice Millard records Theodore Roosevelt’s exploration of a hitherto uncharted river in the heart of the Amazon and turns the incredible story of Teddy Roosevelt’s South American adventure into one that easily matches an Indiana Jones screen adventure.

Why River of Doubt?

Teddy Roosevelt lived on Long Island from 1885 until his death in 1919.
The book covers a part of Teddy Roosevelt’s life that is both fascinating and not well known.
The book will appeal to readers of American history, Long Island History, American Presidents, adventure stories, and travel narratives.
River of Doubt is available in hardcover, paperback, large type, audio CD and downloadable audio.
Programming opportunities are numerous.
