Rambling Session - The River of Doubt (03/06/2024)

So I am currently reading The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey. I do not know a ton about Theodore Roosevelt, but what I did know intrigued me enough to want to find something about him to read. This book continually came up as highly recommended, so I went for it. 

Wowza. I am glad I picked this one to start with! I am only about 150 pages in, but it has been a great read. 

First off, the writing is so digestible - something I really appreciate. Secondly, the way the story is mapped out is perfect. The structure makes sense and isn’t too back and forth. Lastly, as for the content, it has already been a pretty compelling tale. 

Quite frankly, I didn’t think that I would be as interested in a story of South American exploration, but it is truly incredible to think about the bravery of such a journey. I won’t go into detail, but I was hooked before they even got to The River of Doubt, and I just, in fact, got to the chapter where they launched their “dugouts” that they purchased from the local Brazilian Indian tribe into the river.

So far this definitely gets my recommendation.

As for today’s smoke, I went with a Patina Maduro Rustic from the Patina Sampler on the site. These are really growing on me. Upon initial release, I wasn’t crazy about the Maduro. There were no issues, beyond it just not really resonating with my palate. Now it does!

Take care,
