Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Last American

My husband has been raving to me about The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert. Here’s what he says: “It’s the true story of Eustace Conway, who by the age of seven could throw a knife accurately enough to nail a chipmunk to a tree. When he was twelve he could hit a running squirrel with a bow and arrow, and by the time he was seventeen he headed into the mountains and survived by dressing in the skins of animals he had hunted and eaten. Now in his late 30’s, Eustace owns a thousand acres of pristine wilderness and lives in a teepee in the woods full-time. But he is also a college graduate and tours the country educating people about nature. He is the perfect cross between Davy Crockett and Henry David Thoreau. If you love the outdoors, you will love this book.”
