Disappointing book filled with a biased agenda. If it were not a gift from my sons with a lot of really nice pictures I would throw it away. It seems like every other page had a reference to global warming. Disingenuous and misleading in many aspects. I have been there a number of times in the last 30 years and talked to many there who do not share the author's conclusions. If you agree with his philosophy you will probably like it, but if you don't, like me you will cringe at every reference and incorrect statement you read. Don't bother getting the book.
