“The River of Doubt” is Washburn University’s 2017-2018 iREAD book. The Washburn iREAD program’s mission is to foster interdisciplinary connections and campus involvement, along with reading and discussion skills, through a common reading experience for students.

“The River of Doubt” is a biographical account of Theodore Roosevelt’s expedition through the Amazon Rainforest with Brazilian military officer and explorer, Candido Rondon, in 1913.
