What an extraordinary story. Interesting from the very beginning, this story will keep you listening far into the night. Danger around every corner, along with the breathtaking beauty of the Amazon.
Candice Millard has pulled together a very enjoyable book based on history, biography, adventure, and courage. I learned a lot about Theodore Roosevelt-he was one of those people who you may think of as "bigger than life" -quite a unique man.
Paul Michael deserves high praise as well- narrates the book to perfection.
I could see this novel being made into a movie---
