American Experience

Into the Amazon

In 1914, President Theodore Roosevelt and legendary Brazilian explorer Candido Rondon made a perilous journey into the dark and deadly heart of the Amazon rainforest to chart an unknown river in one of the wildest places on earth. What was anticipated to be relatively tranquil journey turned out to be a brutal test of courage and character, claiming the lives of three men and almost killing the president.
