Left for Dead by Pete NelsonThe first time I became aware of the Indianapolis disaster was when I watched Jaws at probably 10 years of age, give or take. Robert Shaws description of the incident was horrifying. Since then, Ive been interested in the tale.
This book goes into the tale and the aftermath. The ship sinking, and the sharks and everything else was bad enough, but the aftermath was bad in its own right. The captain of the ship was scapegoated for no particular reason. It took a little kids report to show the US Navy what it should have known all along.
Its inspiring that the kid had the integrity and grit to see the captains name cleared. Its a shame the Navy couldnt do this themselves without an outside agitation. Really a black eye for them
Sign in. Pete became excited about treehouses at age 5 when his dad built him a treefort behind the garage of their Ridgewood, NJ home. The scope and size of Pete's treehouse fantasies expanded from there, but all of that appeared to run its course by the time he received his driver's license. Pete's treehouse fantasies returned after graduating from college in Colorado with an economics degree. The carpenter and home builder within him could not be silenced, and with an eye to becoming "the treehouse guy", Pete embarked on a unique career path. The publication of Treehouses; The Art and Craft of Living Out on a Limb, the first book of its kind, has inspired him to write five more books on the subject.
