River of Doubt combines an exciting story with detailed documentation, my favorite style of biography. I learned new aspects of Roosevelt's life and the Amazon rain forest.

An historical book that captures your imagination as if it is a fictional adventure. The courage, curiosity and determination it must have taken these men to achieve this level of exploration, one can only read with wonder and admiration.

This harrowing, true tale of TR's exploit after leaving the presidency really sticks with me. It is an engaging read that flows like the river of its title. I strongly recommend this true-life escapism.

The River of Doubt is a great read! The information that accompanies the finds of Roosevelt that give the scientific info of each species, as we know it today, make it a natural science text with all the excitement of a true life adventure.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Well researched and skillfully written, this commanding account of achievement and calamity retraces Roosevelt's perilous expedition of the uncharted Amazon. A dazzling gem of history, Millard's impeccable narrative brims with imagery and tension.

"Review" by , "A rich, dramatic tale that ranges from the personal to the literally earth-shaking."
"Review" by , "[A] fine account...There are far too many books in which a travel writer follows in the footsteps of his or her hero — and there are far too few books like this, in which an author who has spent time and energy ferreting out material from archival sources weaves it into a gripping tale."
"Review" by , "[N]o frills, high-adventure writing...Millard's sober account is as claustrophobic as a walk through the densest jungle, and as full of vigor as Roosevelt himself."
"Review" by , "Millard turns this incredible story into one that easily matches an Indiana Jones screen adventure. Essential."
"Review" by , "[A] riveting, bravura performance....[Millard] re-creates Roosevelt's adventure in spellbinding fashion....Both a white-knuckle survival saga and an informative scientific journal, River of Doubt is an irresistible read."
"Review" by , "This is a bully good adventure tale about a great man."
"Synopsis" by , 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.
