Michael Finkel is the author of the @NewYorkTimes
bestseller, The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit, which we dive deep into on today’s show brought to you by @REI.
An outdoors lover himself, who splits time between Montana and Southern France, Michael has a penchant for stories about those who live on the edges of society, and people who live with less. His previous book, True Story, was adapted into a 2015 major motion picture produced by Brad Pitt starring James Franco and Jonah Hill. Stranger in the Woods is a book I could not put down, and explores why someone would go to such extremes to live in solitude. It's a book that if you love the wild, you will most likely relate to and be intrigued by.
