    Inhaltsangabe

    In this rousing examination of contemporary American male identity, acclaimed author and journalist Elizabeth Gilbert explores the fascinating true story of Eustace Conway. In 1977, at the age of 17, Conway left his family's comfortable suburban home to move to the Appalachian Mountains. For more than two decades he has lived there, making fire with sticks, wearing skins from animals he trapped, and trying to convince Americans to give up their materialistic lifestyles and return with him back to nature.

    To Gilbert, Conway's mythical character challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be a modern man in America; he is a symbol of much we feel about how our men should be, but rarely are.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "The finest examination of American masculinity and wilderness since Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild." (Outside)

    "Wickedly well-written...Without compromising her obvious admiration, Ms. Gilbert presents a warts-and-all portrait of Mr. Conway and a sophisticated understanding of why those warts are only natural.... A vigorous, engaging book." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "Gilbert artfully taps into this unique life to create a fascinating, deeply thought-out and anthralling narrative." (Los Angeles Times)
