Previous reviewers must be less than fully literate. This book is one of the most beautifully written non-fiction works I have had the pleasure of reading. The metaphors and imagery are unparalleled. The prose might as well be poetry. No, it isn't written (or edited) down to a third grade vocabulary level...thank god! His command of verbally is a huge part of what makes this such a breathtaking and engaging read.

Chris Childs takes you on a journey so vividly described that you can't help but be inside the adventure. His observations are astute and his prose is masterful. I couldn't put it down. It is for those with a passion for desert, solitude and nature's wonder.
