A Walk Across America by Peter Jenkins
A Walk Across America

Donzilla, May 27, 2008

An awesome chronicle of one man and his super-hero dog hotfooting across the grand ole U S A. Amazing! He discovers this country's roots and soul!

My War: Killing Time in Iraq by Colby Buzzell
My War: Killing Time in Iraq

Donzilla, February 26, 2008

Colby Buzzell gives you the inside schkoop on what was really going on in Iraq -- at least from one infantryman's perspective.

A well-written book by a well-read, contemporary author who is definitely aware of what is going on around us in this day and age.

Touching the Void: The True Story of One Man's Miraculous Survival by Joe Simpson
Touching the Void: The True Story of One Man's Miraculous Survival

Donzilla, February 25, 2008

I had dreams of white, deadly mountains, and narrow, gaping chasms.

Great (true) story-telling! I love the excerpts from the other players, where you get to see the story from both sides.

Living At Nature's Pace by Gene Logsdon
Living At Nature's Pace

Donzilla, February 22, 2008

This is more like a Bible than a book. Gene points out, again and again, the rational solution to the modern (and timelessly repeated) problem of oppression of the agrarian lifestyle. His cutting logic is brutal and concise (e.g., "consolidation is done for power, not efficiency").

He makes you happy, then downtrodden; he leads you through despair, but ends with a hopeful light.

A must read for all of us living in these oh-so-unnatural times.

Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide by Peter Allison
Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide

Donzilla, February 19, 2008

Saw the cover, picked it up... Next thing I know it was 60 minutes later -- I was totally absorbed. I walked to the checkout counter and bought it straightaway.

I spent some time in Africa and went on Safari and Peter Allison's witty prose and mischievous humor took me right back there for another grand old time. My Wife and I read the entire book out loud to each other, alternating chapters.

We wept, we cried, we laughed, and we nearly needed a change of pants at certain points. An excellent work! I'm buying copies for all my friends!
