I love historical fiction, but I've been bit in the arse with novels that feature real historical figures so I was a bit hesitant when I saw this novel on NetGalley. I clicked the request button and I received a copy to read for review. To be honest, it sat on my kindle for a couple of weeks. I would pass over it as I scrolled through to find a new read because I liked the promise the title and cover spoke of, but was wary and didn't want to be disappointed.
I am glad that I bit the bullet, as it were, and spent yesterday camped out in front of my air conditioner and went on a historical romp through the Amazon featuring my favorite American president and his son Kermit. I recommend this novel for anyone who enjoys historical action-adventure fiction. I doubt you will be disappointed.
