Booktalk: “The River of Doubt” by Candace Millard

This river is a tributary of the mighty Amazon. It snakes through one of the world’s most treacherous jungles and it’s where President Teddy Roosevelt and his group, including one of his sons, attempted to travel its unmapped length a century ago.  The author made Roosevelt’s story of this perilous adventure into a nonfiction thriller.  Her newest book is “Destiny of the Republic.”
