For this week's Teaser Tuesday I'm choosing The River of Doubt:Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey by Candice Millard

"Even Rondon was shocked by how pathetic Julio looked, crouching in the gnarled tree like a frightened animal, "imploring for mercy and asking us to receive him on board." Three nights alone in the jungle would have taken their toll on any of the men, but they had been especially excruciating for Julio." (pg. 277)
