    Man Vs. Nature books

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by Dan Kirkalnd, Apr 10, 2012.

    I just finished re-reading "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krakauer, I had forgotten how much I loved this book. I read it as a teenager and I loved it then and love it now.

    What are you some good Man Vs. Nature books that you all like that you'd heartily recommend?
