1914. Brazil's Rio da Duvida, the River of Doubt. Plagued by hunger and suffering the lingering effects of malaria, 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 Teddy are kidnapped by a never-before-seen Amazonian tribe, the great hunters are asked one thing in exchange for their freedom: find and kill a beast that leaves no tracks and that no member of the tribe has ever seen. But what are the origins of this beast, and how do they escape its brutal wrath?

"Start with a fantastic true story, in this case, an expedition to some remote corner of the planet. Then, when reality veers right, jog to the left and add a beastÑa terror that brings another dimension to an already harrowing adventure. Combine all this with an experienced narrator, and you have the framework for this thrilling audiobook. Based on the true adventure of Teddy Roosevelt and his son Kermit and their descent of the unexplored River of Doubt in Brazil, the jog into horror fiction quickly pits the characters against an unknown beast that is terrorizing a remote Indian tribe. John PrudenÕs narration complements the multiple voices, dual gender depictions, multiple languages, creepy atmosphere, and animal sounds with ease, immersing the listener in this fantastic tale.
