This is an enjoyable page turner. The author is totally self aware, which I appreciated. The memoir is an adventure story for nature lovers. Give it a go!

Excellent book. It's hard to put this one down for any length of time. If you like stories of adventures in the far corners of the earth, this is a must read.
