Summary
Teddy Roosevelt's calamitous 1914 Amazon expedition with his son Kermit provides the background for this richly atmospheric novel from Edgar-finalist Bayard (The School of Night). The prologue, set in 1943 Alaska, makes plain the toll taken on Kermit, who, even years later, hallucinates that he sees skin and flesh peel off a friend's skull. The main narrative chronicles the circumstances leading up to Kermit's mental deterioration, as the difficult conditions of their trek to map the course of the so-called River of Doubt prove too much for Teddy
