Through the Brazilian Wilderness

ByTheodore Roosevelt

Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (1858–1919) was the 26th President of the United States. He is famous for lively "cowboy" image, his wast range of interests and achievements, and his leadership of the Progressive "Bull Moose" Party of 1912. Besides politician, Roosevelt was a soldier, explorer, big game hunter, conservationist, historian, author and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. After his presidency, Teddy underwent an expedition to explore and map the area around the 950-mile River of Doubt in the unknown regions of Brazil and Paraguay. This six-week "zoological reconnaissance" was carried out with his son Kermit, with whom he'd endure all manner of hardships including dangerous animals, strange insects, fever, dysentery, oppressive heat, and killer rapids. Roosevelt's popular 1913 book Through the Brazilian Wilderness is the resulting account of this adventure.
