it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, outdoors, travel

One of my favorite books of all time. Incredible blend of personal experience, interesting characters that happen to be all real, fascinating historical stories that happen to be true, and geologic history explained in a way that is understandable to the layman. Very very very excellent. Read it.

P.S. Did you know it won a Pulitzer?
