Roosevelt's Beast is a reimagining of Teddy and Kermit Roosevelt's ill-fated 1914 Amazon expedition: a new novel from the acclaimed Louis Bayard

1914. Brazil's Rio da Duvida, the River of Doubt. Plagued by hunger and suffering the lingering effects of malaria, Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, his son Kermit, and the other members of the now-ravaged Roosevelt-Rondon scientific expedition are traveling deeper and deeper into the jungle. When Kermit and the Colonel are kidnapped by a mysterious Amazonian tribe, they soon discover the price of their freedom.
