– Doc Ford, Sanibel FlatsSanibel’s cool gulf breezes lured him from a life of danger. Its dark undercurrents threatened to destroy him. After ten years of living life on the edge, it was hard for Doc Ford to get that addiction to danger out of his system. But spending each day watching the sun melt into Dinkins Bay and the moon rise over the mangrove trees, cooking dinner for his beautiful neighbor, and dispensing advice to the locals over a cold beer lulled him into letting his guard down.”
Fascinating story, but I couldn’t get past his hatchet job on Anatoli Boukreev. For all his criticism of Boukreev not using oxygen, the reality is that when the storm hit them during the night, Krakauer was holed up in his tent while Boukreev had the strength to make multiple trips trying to save people.one of the most absorbing books i've read is John Krakauer's Into Thin Air.....about an Everest disaster.....you can't put it down.
