Description

The remarkable story of the journey taken by President Theodore Roosevelt and Brazilian explorer Cândido Mariano to chart an unexplored tributary of the Amazon in 1913. Before it was all over, one member of the expedition had drowned, another had committed murder, and Roosevelt would badly injure his leg and beg to be left behind to die.
