Right at the top. I couldn't stop listening...What an amazing tale of an ordinary guy who followed his heart into a world class adventure.
Stones into Schools, the book about an American mountain climber who brought education to women in Afghanistan
This is my first, so I really cannot compare to any of his others.
Larry's brush with Pirates and the difficulties they encountered around keeping the boat repaired and functional had me thinking I'd have quit the trip many times over. His courage in the face of tall odds was very impressive, especially during some of the horrendous storm crossings.
