The true story of Colton Harris-Moore, America's 21st-century outlaw. Born into a poor family marred by alcohol abuse, Colt had the sheriff after him before age ten. He survived by breaking into homes for food, and learned to evade the police by melting into the Pacific Northwest wilds. As a teenager, he escalated to stealing cars, boats, and identities. Caught, he escaped juvenile prison and fled to nearby Orcas Island, where he stole an airplane without ever having a formal flight lesson. Orcas resident Bob Friel witnessed firsthand as FBI agents, SWAT teams, and Homeland Security helicopters pursued Colt. When he crashed his third stolen plane, Time called him "America's Most Wanted Teen". After more than two years on the run, Colt fled Orcas and began a spectacular cross-country trek. Friel followed him all the way to the Bahamas, where the chase finally ended. Set against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest's evergreen islands, where Internet millionaires coexist with survivalists and ex-hippies, this is a stranger-than-fiction tale about a troubled child who outfoxed the authorities, gained a cult following, and made the world take notice.--From publisher description.… (more)
