      Porter you bastard! I just finished your book sitting here off the coast of CA. My eyes dripping and my cheeks soaking wet. My heart broken with the feeling that our beloved planet is dying at our own hands. As I have some Cherokee blood in me and have always feel close to nature, and I have been to most of the places you talk about in your book and many many more including Everest, well I just never knew that so much is going on behind the scenes to try to make a difference.... So thank you for your efforts. I take what you have written to heart and wanted to tell you I will try to improve my efforts... and.... DAMN GOOD JOB! Still not happy you made a grown man cry... grrrrrr.....
