AFTERNOON BOOK GROUP
Books & Company, Thursday, May 21 at 1pm
Afternoon Book Group Open to the Community Thursday, May 21, 2015 1:00-2:00 p.m. Books & Company Ken will be leading the discussion on The River of Doubt by Candace Millard (June 18~ Wives of Los Alamos by Tarashea Nesbit) After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find, the first descent of an unmapped, rapids-choked tributary of the Amazon. Together with his son Kermit and Brazil’s most famous explorer, Cândido Mariano da Silva Rondon, Roosevelt accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it. In the process, he changed the map of the western hemisphere forever. Along the way, Roosevelt and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships, losing their canoes and supplies to punishing whitewater rapids, and enduring starvation, Indian attack, disease, drowning, and a murder within their own ranks. Three men died, and Roosevelt was brought to the brink of suicide. The River of Doubt brings alive these extraordinary events in a powerful nonfiction narrative thriller that happens to feature one of the most famous Americans who ever lived.
