Hi,

I'm on a non-fiction kick these days, and am looking for ideas.

I like true adventure stories, historical stuff (but generally not war books), and avoid books by politicians.

Things I've read lately that I have liked, to give you an idea:

Manhunt - the search for Booth after Lincoln was shot
Krakatoa - story of a huge volcano eruption a long time ago
Between a Rock and a Hard Place - about a guy who got trapped while canyoneering and had to cut off his arm to break free.

I also liked Into Thin Air a few years ago.

So, any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Karen
