Eustace Conway is a Naturalist who lives in the mountains of Boone, North Carolina. He’s been living in the forest there for nearly 40 years.
When Conway was 17 years old, he left the suburbs to live outdoors. He has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, and has crossed the United States on horseback from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
When it comes to money, Conway says he has little use for it. He is the subject of the book, The Last American Man, by Elizabeth Gilbert.
