summary The Cloud Garden A True Story of Adventure Survival and Extreme Horticulture 108 Pecies he so fervently admired he would have to visit some of the most inhospitable places on earth At the same time another young explorer Paul Winder was backpacking through the area Though he sometimes worked freelance in the City of London Paul was essentially a fearless traveler Pure chance brought Paul and Tom together in northern Mexico; they formed an instant bond and their fate was sealed Ignoring a final succinct warning from the Lonely Plane. From being strangers to getting kidnapped in the Darien Gap these two guys go through hell and back Makes me not want to travel outside tourist areas A great read
