River of doubt : Theodore Roosevelt's darkest journey by Candice Millard( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 3,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The true story of Theodore Roosevelt's harrowing 1914 exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth, a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world. Indians armed with poison-tipped arrows haunt its shadows; piranhas glide through its waters; boulder-strewn rapids turn the river into a roiling cauldron. After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find, the first descent of an unmapped tributary of the Amazon. He and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships, losing their canoes and supplies to punishing whitewater rapids, and enduring starvation, Indian attack, disease, drowning, and a murder within their own ranks. Three men died, and Roosevelt was brought to the brink of suicide. Yet he accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it.--From publisher description
Hero of the empire : the Boer War, a daring escape and the making of Winston Churchill by Candice Millard( Book )

27 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 2,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At age twenty-four, Winston Churchill was utterly convinced it was his destiny to become prime minister of England one day, despite the fact he had just lost his first election campaign for Parliament. He believed that to achieve his goal he must do something spectacular on the battlefield. Despite deliberately putting himself in extreme danger as a British Army officer in colonial wars in India and Sudan, and as a journalist covering a Cuban uprising against the Spanish, glory and fame had eluded him. Churchill arrived in South Africa in 1899, valet and crates of vintage wine in tow, there to cover the brutal colonial war the British were fighting with Boer rebels. But just two weeks after his arrival, the soldiers he was accompanying on an armored train were ambushed, and Churchill was taken prisoner. Remarkably, he pulled off a daring escape -- but then had to traverse hundreds of miles of enemy territory, alone, with nothing but a crumpled wad of cash, four slabs of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. The story of his escape is incredible enough, but then Churchill enlisted, returned to South Africa, fought in several battles, and ultimately liberated the men with whom he had been imprisoned. Churchill would later remark that this period, "could I have seen my future, was to lay the foundations of my later life." Millard spins an epic story of bravery, savagery, and chance encounters with a cast of historical characters -- including Rudyard Kipling, Lord Kitchener, and Mohandas Gandhi -- with whom he would later share the world stage. But Hero of the Empire is more than an adventure story, for the lessons Churchill took from the Boer War would profoundly affect 20th century history."--

From New York Times bestselling author of Destiny of the Republic and The River of Doubt, a thrilling narrative of Winston Churchill's extraordinary and little-known exploits during the Boer War At age twenty-four, Winston Churchill was utterly convinced it was his destiny to become prime minister of England one day, despite the fact he had just lost his first election campaign for Parliament.

The river of doubt : into the unknown Amazon by Candice Millard( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the beginning of the twentieth century, the South American rainforest was largely uncharted territory. Few white men had ventured into its hostile, impenetrable depths. Even fewer had attempted to chart the River of Doubt, a churning, ink-black tributary of the Amazon that wends its way nearly 1000 miles through the Brazilian rainforest. It was regarded as one of the most dangerous places on earth. And it was the place to which, in 1914, ex-President Theodore Roosevelt spearheaded one of the most extraordinary and, until now, largely unchronicled expeditions in modern history."--Jacket
