TRA River of Doubt Tour featuring Rio de Janeiro, Iguazu Falls, Amazon Cruise

  • Retrace Theodore Roosevelt's footsteps in Rio
  • Sail a luxury ship through the Amazon
  • Visit Iguazu Falls, unlike any falls on earth
  • Customized trip studying the Roosevelt-Rondon Scientific Expedition

 

Theodore Roosevelt's 1914 canoe descent of the Amazon's mythical River of Doubt ranks among history's most remarkable adventures and was undertaken by one of America's most remarkable presidents. During the centennial summer of that epic trek, Paul Schurke and Dave Freeman retraced Roosevelt's route. They also dug deeply into the life of a passionate outdoorsman whose towering political career didn't keep him from exercising his personal commitment to spending at least 30 days annually sleeping under the stars - even during his White House years! But the rigors of the River of Doubt - illness, insects, starvation - nearly cost Roosevelt his life. When he realized his debilitated condition might prevent his teammates from finishing the trek alive, he contemplated suicide.

Paul & Dave dodged those pitfalls. But the river, now called the Rio Roosevelt, held many surprises for them as well. And they encountered a key element of the river that Roosevelt "felt" but never saw: the Cinta Larga Indians, the Amazon natives who fiercely control access to this region. They silently stalked Roosevelt's team with poison arrows and did not make contact with the outside world until 1970. While planning the trip, Paul & Dave were repeatedly warned that they remain hostile to outsiders. But the Cinta Larga embraced Paul's & Dave's arrival in their settlement. And they shared with Paul & Dave their heartrending story of their abrupt transition from Stone Age to Digital Age and their hopes for the destiny of their tribe and river (now called the Rio Roosevelt) that is the centerpiece of their ancestral lands. Ride this wind river with Paul on his presentation about this two-month jungle canoe trek and learn about our most adventurous president.
