Stranger in the Forest - Eric Hansen

I stuck with reading 'Stranger in the Forest' by Eric Hansen (of Orchid
Fever fame). As was stated previously, no orchids but a cracking good yarn.
If I was given to overstatement I'd say probably the best travel book I've
read. Beating out Chatwin's 'In Patagonia' even. If you ever get a chance
and the time is right I'd recommend it. I bought the book 3 or so years ago
and tried reading it a few times, but my mind wasn't in the right place.

I've met Eric Hansen once or twice and he's just some unprepossessing
fellow. You wouldn't look twice at him in a crowd. Sort of like Clark
Kent.

I am sure meeting the guy would add to the flavor of the book. Not big
on travel books myself but enjoy PBS shows on travel. I read Sci-Fi and
Tech stuff when I can get away from this PC.
