The Evolution of Mysteries in Nature: more information than I wanted.
Reviewed in the United States on September 4, 2017
While I enjoyed the expedition of T Roosevelt in the Amazon region of South American very much and the difficulties the men went through while following the River of Doubt, I got very tired and somewhat discouraged with the detailed discussion of the relationship of vines, epiphytes and trees; and the life and legend of the bloodsucking catfishes and many other symbiotic relationships between plants, ant and humans. I felt these were "fillers" in the book, of interest to some, but distracting to me. Again, the pre-historic following of the Amazon Indians could be interesting, if I wasn't so interested in how these brave men managed to complete their goal of making it home with diseases, starvation and depression.
