I received a signed copy of this book for Christmas and savored every moment of it. It was interesting to hear about the private man behind the icon. Many smart people come off as asses, so it did not surprise me that some see Eustace this way. After reading this book, I want to visit Turtle Island and meet this "manly-man". He has so much knowledge, reverence for the earth, and I think it would be amazing to learn from him.
