Whether he’s looking for wild orangutans on Borneo or diving off the coast of South Africa, Randy Wayne White is one of America’s most adventurous travelers. Now Randy’s back in Last Flight Out, a brand-new collection of essays keeping us up to date on his latest excursions.
Randy White is a “mover” and has no time for people who can’t keep up. Join him as he dives in the infamous lake called the Bad Blue Hole on the desolate Cat Island in the Bahamas. Search for wild orangutans in Borneo and, closer to home, go raccoon hunting in Pioneer, Ohio, where the hunted almost always outsmart the hunters. Get in the ring with Shine Forbes, an eighty-year-old fighter in prime condition and Ernest Hemingway’s former sparring partner, and go on a secret mission to steal back General Manuel Noriega’s bar stools. Though he rarely finds what he’s looking for—such as the half-human, half-alligator creature known as “Gatorman”—he cultivates his unique ability to revel in the unique and comical situations of each exotic trip.
From a jungle survival school in Panama to a week at a professional wrestler’s training camp, White leaves the reader mesmerized by the potential of undiscovered places and the promise of endless adventure in unfamiliar territory. An icon of the new breed of thick-skinned, high-endurance travelers, Randy White is the real deal.
