Candice Millard’s mind explores the world on a daily basis. She’s a former writer and editor at National Geographic magazine. She's written on Ethiopian Christians and the lost Ark. Her latest work,The River of Doubt, is an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait -- the true story of Theodore Roosevelt’s harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth. The River of Doubt 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.
Many thanks, Bob
I wish have her email to send greetings and invite her to come to brazil, lately she has a lot of fans here.
Acabei de ler seu livro "O Rio da Dúvida" e não podia deixar de parabenizá-la.
Redescobre dois heróis: Roosevelt e Rondon.
Poderíamos organizar uma escursão pelo RIO DA DÚVIDA para comemorar 100 anos da viagem de RONDON e ROOSEVELT, o que voce acha...Faríamos o mesmo percurso com guias locais etc.

As an aside, I had no idea who Candice Millard was until looking for more of her works then stumbled upon a photo taken at a lecture. At the risk of sounding totally sexist I must comment that not only does she have a gift with word, Candice is fabulously attractive. Kudos to you Ms. Millard. Keep the good works coming.
