John "Largo" Long is an almost larger than life pioneer in the Yosemite rock
climbing and Joshua Tree bouldering communities of the 1970s and 1980s. He is also an
extremely creative and interesting writer. One of the best things about this
book is that it is inundated with humorous touches and is often hysterically
funny. The stories he tells in this book,
most of them true or at least with a kernel of truth in those that are larger
than life, are always interesting. While the stories here rarely touch on
climbing, they demonstrate a consistent philosophy of an adventurer at heart --
someone who lives his experiences to the fullest. Through his writing, he shows
that he truly cares about the environment where his adventures take place; even
though his experiences exploring prehistoric cultures in Malaysia seem to show a
bit of disrespect to the cultures he is interfering with, I always sensed that
he was respectful of the people around him.
