Presents a biography that focuses on Roosevelt's interest in adventure and exploration, and describes his discoveries in the rain forests of Brazil after ending his political career.

Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States is a major figure in American political history. Teddy as he was affectionately known probably did more than any other leader to position the United States as was world power at the start of the 20th century. After serving as president from 1901 to 1908 and running unsuccessfully for a third therm in 1912, Roosevelt was not ready to relax. Instead, he embarked on an ambitious expedition along the might Amazon River, the second longest river in the world.

During his trip, Roosevelt and his party explored many unknown or little known areas, including a tributary that the Brazilian government later named after the formed president. Along the way the party encountered such strange creatures as piranhas, poisonous snakes and vampire bats. Roosevelt himself became so ill with fever that he nearly died in the jungle.

Nevertheless, Theodore Roosevelt survived the adventure and went on to write a best selling book about his journey of exploration, Through the Brazilian Wilderness .

"These volumes follow a winning formula: accessible text, abundant and diverse illustrative material, and sidebars that distill the main ideas of each chapter. These books will find eager audiences among report writers and browsers looking for high adventure."
