Theodore Roosevelt's response to the disappointment of losing the 1912 presidential election was to organize and join an uncharted expedition through the Amazon along a treacherous and unpredictable path, "the river of doubt." Richard Ferrone recounts this story with diligence and precise Brazilian enunciation where required. His fervor builds to a suspenseful peak as Roosevelt, his son, their American cohorts, and a band of Brazilian guides endure starvation, Indian attacks, disease, and near drowning in the river's unforgiving rapids. Ferrone's narrative provides inspiration to listeners with his insight into Roosevelt's tenacity, which characterized this true American hero and "man of men."
