Through the Brazilian Wilderness by Theodore Roosevelt


pdf epub fb2 djvu



Through the Brazilian Wilderness describes Roosevelt's expedition into the Brazilian jungle in 1913. The book describes scenic tropical views and an exotic fauna and flora. "When I started from the United States, it was to make an expedition, primarily concerned with mammalogy and ornithology, for the American Museum of Natural History of New York. This was undertaken under the auspices of Messrs. Osborn and Chapman, acting on behalf of the Museum. In the body of this work I describe how the scope of the expedition was enlarged, and how it was given a geographic as well as a zoological character, in consequence of the kind proposal of the Brazilian Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, General Lauro Muller.
