Canton Seniors Book Discussion: September 26, 2013

Canton Seniors Book Group will meet on Thursday, September 26 from 2:00-3:00PM in Canton Public Library's Group Study Room A. We will be discussing The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey by Candace Millard. Copies of the book are distributed at the meeting or request a copy at the Adult Help Desk. No registration required.

River of doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's darkest journey by Candice Millard. The River of Doubt--it is a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world. Indians armed with poison-tipped arrows haunt its shadows; piranhas glide through its waters; boulder-strewn rapids turn the river into a roiling cauldron. 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. This is the true story of his journey.
