THE RIVER OF DOUBT Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey

by | Read by Paul Michael

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

After his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt and his son Kermit organized an expedition down an uncharted tributary of the Amazon River for science and adventure. Party members suffered or died from malaria, starvation, drowning, carnivorous fish, venomous reptiles, natives with poison-tipped arrows, and parasites. Paul Michael reads the dangerous chapter in the ex-president's life with enthusiasm and vitality as his easy-to-understand voice travels from one disaster to another. He imitates TR's voice with a little twang and produces a Desi Arnaz English for the Brazilian colonel leading the trek. Michael also vocally punctuates the abundant quoted material with a slight pause beforehand and handles the foreign words with ease.
