This review is from: The Last American Man (Paperback)
Like a previous reviewer I have been reading Eat, Pray & Love, which my wife also loved. Looking for a birthday present for her, I came across this one. It is certainly not easy to give books, but I am convinced she is going to like it.
Elisabeth Gilbert style of writing is very fluid and focused, so I was neither bored nor distracted reading her account of the life of an extraordinary man, Eustace Conway and his many adventures in Americas wilderness. Here is somebody who has taken self sufficiency to an extreme, not a mere dreamer but a survivor. Very inspiring.
