and finally about his fears and ways of coping alone in such a beautiful but challenging location.Full of fascinating observations about encounters with drug runners, poachers, Humboldt squid, feral cats, endemic chuckwallas and the large endemic Mitchell’s rattlesnakes that prey on them… and packed with useful information about making drinking water from the sea, how to drop beer by parachute from a small plane, and the challenges of paddling a sit-on-top kayak in waters subject to extreme wind and current conditions.Easily shifts from the practical to the poetic, from comedy to tragedy, and from the irreverent to the profoundly spiritual.Over 180 maps and photographs, many in full color.
