July: Biography - “The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey” by Candice Millard

In a gripping account, Millard focuses on an episode in Teddy Roosevelt's search for adventure that nearly came to a disastrous end. A South American trip that evolved into an ill-prepared journey down an unexplored tributary of the Amazon, the explorers were hampered by the failure to pack enough supplies, the absence of canoes sturdy enough for the river's rapids, an injury Roosevelt sustained which became infected with flesh-eating bacteria, as well as the cannibalistic indigenous tribe that stalked the explorers.
