Feeling bored after leaving the White House in 1913, Theodore Roosevelt decided to combine his interest in the natural world with his love of adventure by heading an scientific expedition into the tropical jungles of Brazil's Amazon basin. The expedition's harrowing experiences are recounted in Through the Brazilian Wilderness: constant threats from drowning, heat, animals, and tropical diseases. While obviously best-known as a politician and an outdoorsman, Roosevelt was also the author of a number of books, and this one demonstrates his enthusiastic approach to life. This Dover edition is complete and unabridged.
