Mini Review: The River of Doubt by Candice Millard
What a fascinating, strange, stubborn, crazy man Teddy Roosevelt was! This story focuses on his journey to the Amazon, and it is certainly quite a trip! I don't know how he or any member of his party survived everything they went through. Millard has a real talent making for making nonfiction read like fiction, and it was compelling from beginning to end. She interwove the story of the expedition with parts of Teddy's history and family life, which made it feel really rounded and engaging. Looking forward to reading more by this author!
