Tuesday Book Discussion

Tuesday, August 8th at 1:00pm. “River of Doubt” by Candice Millard is the nonfiction book to be discussed at the August meeting of the Killingworth Library Tuesday Book Discussion Group. It tells of the extraordinary journey of Teddy Roosevelt and his son Kermit down an uncharted Amazon river as 1914 began. It is also the story of Brazil’s most honored explorer, Candido Rondon whose passion was the protection of indigenous peoples. The strength of character and ingenuity of these historical figures make for an exciting adventure. Descriptions of the rain forest ecology are worth the read in themselves. Neither Roosevelt nor his son could fathom why in a jungle teeming with life, hunting was almost impossible and starvation never far off. Newcomers and drop ins are always welcomed. Extra copies can be found at the circulation desk.
