"Plan B was to kill Maryanne and steal her pop tarts". Classic Bryson. This is another book that the whole family could enjoy. No words of caution, just add it to your cart.
Great stories about life as an African safari guide. Some are as funny as they are hair raising. Good narrator.
Avid audible listener for over 10 years.
It's hard to forget that only 60 years ago there were places on earth that were not explored by man. Today you can see everywhere with google earth. You can see all the approaches to the mountain in 3D.
I read Into Thin Air about an ascent in the 1980s and it was shocking how things have changed. No gps receivers, high tech fabrics, etc. Now that Everest is climbed by teenagers it's great to read a story where the likely outcome was death. The same could be said about Lindbergh and first flight across Atlantic.
I wish there was some unexplored place on earth that I could conquer. There will never be one for my generation. This was the last one.
