River of Doubt

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

This book is non-fiction but reads like a fast paced novel. You won't be able to put it down! A very interesting group of people embark on an exploration of the Amazon river with some disastrous results. The group includes American naturalists, a Catholic priest, a U.S. president and his son, a Brazilian general and more. They encounter near starvation, injuries, cannibals, and the fury of nature in their quest to map and explore the river. If you like adventure and history, you'll love this book.
