    ePUB John McPhee ↠ Silk Parachute Kindle å ↠ silk download, parachute book, Silk Parachute PDFThe amazing thing about John McPhee is that he can hold one's attention even when the subject matter is not otherwise interesting The longest essays in Silk Parachute are about lacrosse and golf neither of which sports is to my taste Yet the great mass of details he presents somehow make the reader wonder what's next That is no mean talentTo date I have read a dozen of McPhee's books and I'm not finished yet
