    At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, The River of Doubt is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt's harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth.

    Overall

    This is a wonderfully written book about an amazing adventure - a journey down an uncharted and unexplored river of the Brazilian rain forest, led by the middle-aged ex-president of the United States. The explorers encountered privation, injury, disease and death in seeking the river's outlet to the Amazon; the two-month journey was nearly Roosevelt's last.

  • The Red Tent

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs)

    Passionate, earthy, deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable contribution to modern fiction: a vibrant new perspective of female life in the age that shaped present day civilization and values.

    If you like The Red Tent, try The Harlot by the Side of the Road, a recounting of some of the most startling and explicit writings from The Old Testament.

    Overall

    terrible narration: sounds like Mrs. Cleaver; not appropriate for this book
