Teddy Roosevelt

Last night I finished "The River of Doubt" by Candice Millard. Teddy Roosevelt, ex-president undertakes a very fool-hardy exploration of a tributary of the Amazon River in 1913-1914. The book was a spell binding adventure story with lots of tidbits of information about the flora and fauna of the Amazon region. I knew that Roosevelt survived the trip but didn't know whether the other main characters were as lucky.

The other book I finished just a short time ago was a quick read: the latest Maisie Dobbs mystery - "Among the Mad". I've read them all now so will move on to other books I've purchased including "Sarah's Key".
