S30: Into the Amazon: Candido Rondon

When Theodore Roosevelt accepted an expedition down an unknown river in Brazil, his guide was to be a man named Cândido Rondon. Rondon was a colonel in the Brazilian army, and had spent the previous ten years fording a path through the Amazon and laying thousands of miles of telegraph wire. He was considered the Lewis and Clark of Brazil. Filmmaker John Maggio introduces the intrepid explorer.
