 About the Book 

I hate to be so tough on hannahs dads favorite childhood story but that last chapter was just a throw-away, you cant begin a story with mountain lions and end with basket-weaving, you really cant. If Id been reading this book in the woods beside a small fire with a whittling knife handy and some good rope I couldnt possibly have any criticisms about it, even about all of those basket-weaving diagrams- but I wasnt in the woods, I was in the new york subway and if Id had a whittling knife Id have been arrested. But Ive taken notes, and if I ever get out of this train and find some woods Im carving a spoon, learning how to tie a bunch of different knots, and Im gonna bake some bread in a reflector oven over some open flames.
