really liked it

I got interested in Eustace Conway after watching the History Channel series "Mountain Men," and wanted to see what this kind of hippie-environmentalist-mountain man was about. Elizabeth Gilbert got a little star-struck, but then again Conway is charismatic--you can tell that from the show even though the show gave a really one-sided view of the man and his life. Fascinating study of a very smart man who marches way to the left of normal compared to most of us--and would have us live his way if he could. Part of me wants to move to the mountain and take up pioneer living...but I'm not sure I could live without wifi--LOL. A fascinating read.
