Descripción

In The Shadows Of The Morning collects Caputo's essays for the first time, each imbued with the powerful and memorable writing, which made him famous. In "The Ahab Complex," Caputo recalls a life-and-death struggle off the coast of Florida with a giant blue marlin whose quarter-ton body "lit up as if a gigantic light had flashed in the water." He recounts his travels in Kenya's largest national park among the only lions to have a natural tendency to stalk and eat human beings, and how their gruesome escapades invaded his dreams. In "The Last of the Big Open," he reflects on a harrowing trip down the Alaskan river that nearly claimed his son's life, nature's indifference to human loss, and an evocative account of letting go. In The Shadows Of The Morning is a fascinating journey through a lifetime of profound experiences. Adventurers and lovers of great writing will welcome this collection of finely crafted essays by one of America's most gifted writers.
