To me an inspiration from a man who lived what he always wanted to do. He lived during a time developing history and was fotunate enough to record it for history. Not a glory and guts book instead a tale of living a life from a dream. Life is full of people who can dream and live it, we just don't get to hear their stories. Recommend
