The story of a troubled, quixotic man who, through a damaged childhood that would have ruined most people, never quite manages to emotionally trust enough to have full relationships but who has a powerful love of the planet he lives on and is absolutely committed to helping it survive. Even the women who divorced him seem to still love and respect him. I discovered a person who interested me on multiple levels and I came to feel great admiration for him. He has put his money where his mouth is and how many of the 1% can truly say that? Not perfect but admirable none-the-less. Well worth the read.
