The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert Book Summary

Finalist for the National Book Award

From the New York Times bestselling author of Eat Pray Love, Big Magic and City of Girls comes a riveting exploration of manhood and all its complicated meanings through the portrait of an American Mountain Man. 

In this rousing examination of contemporary American male identity, acclaimed author and journalist Elizabeth Gilbert explores the fascinating true story of Eustace Conway. In 1977, at the age of seventeen, Conway left his family's comfortable suburban home to move to the Appalachian Mountains. For more than two decades he has lived there, making fire with sticks, wearing skins from animals he has trapped, and trying to convince Americans to give up their materialistic lifestyles and return with him back to nature. To Gilbert, Conway's mythical character challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be a modern man in America; he is a symbol of much we feel how our men should be, but rarely are.

The Last American Man (Elizabeth Gilbert) Book Reviews

ReviewThe book is interesting as is Eustace Conway. Would have given a higher rating had the author left out constant expletives. Sorry, I realize this is the way most writers and definitely all of Hollywood rolls now but it just ruins what could have been a very good read. Not sure what anyone is trying to prove by throwing in an expletive here and there. The thing my husband and I like so much about Eustace and Preston on Mountain Men is that you don’t have a non stop stream of beeps due to their language so not sure why this writer felt she had to write it that way. Just being cool I supose..Score: 3/5

Spellbinding true tale!Spellbinding true account of one truly bizzare, incredibly inspired, yet sadly, emotionally flawed, real-live mountain man. Gilbert proves her knack for finding a sensational story with this one. Captivating!.Score: 4/5

The Last American ManThe most boring book I ever read. He is not the last American man by any means. His story could be written in few words. You paint him as a hero with this title and he definitely is not..Score: 1/5
