520    [In this book, the author] explores the true story of 
       Eustace Conway, who left his comfortable suburban home at 
       the age of seventeen to move into the Appalachian 
       Mountains, where for the last twenty years he has lived, 
       making fire with sticks, wearing skins from animals he 
       trapped, and living off the land. A charismatic and 
       romantic figure, both brilliant and tormented, brave and 
       contradictory, restless and ambitious, Conway has always 
       seen himself as a "Man of Destiny" whose goal is to 
       convince modern Americans to give up their materialistic 
       lifestyles and return with him back to nature. [The 
       author] tells of Eustace's crusade and his extraordinary 
       wilderness adventures, including his 2000-mile hike down 
       the Appalachian Trail (surviving almost exclusively on 
       what he could hunt and gather along the way) and his 
       legendary journey across America on horseback." To [her], 
       Eustace Conway's mythical character challenges all our 
       assumptions about what it is to be a modern man in 
       America; he is a symbol of what we feel our men should be,
       but rarely are. From his example, she delivers a look at 
       an archetypal American man and - from the point of view of
       a contemporary woman - refracts masculine American 
       identity in all its conflicting elements of inventiveness,
       narcissism, isolation, and intimacy.-Dust jacket
