Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Former president Roosevelt's firsthand account, written while travelling, of his adventures on the River of Doubt, a tributary to the Amazon River, in 1914. Roosevelt undertook the journey to map the previously unknown 950-mile river and collect specimens for the American Museum of Natural History, but it quickly became a harrowing test of endurance from which he was lucky to escape alive. Includes an introduction by Roosevelt's great-grandson, who made the identical trip himself in 1992. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The New York Times
Roosevelt has been able to add one more excellent volume to a list which is already a paraiseworthy record.
The Boston Transcript
An exceedingly fascinating story of adventure. IT is the best story...that the many-sided former president of the United States has produced.
