No Other Marks. Binding Is Tight With Minor Wear On Cover....................... Cantwell’s interest in adventure travel has taken him and his family to all 7 continents, including a trek to the Mt. Everest base camp, a hike on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, and a search for Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat. Most recently, he hiked to the rim of a volcano on Easter Island to see the site where rapamycin was discovered. In 1984, he was elected a Fellow in the intrepid Explorers Club. When she was 14, his daughter Kelly, asked him ‘‘why can’t we take vacations like normal people, such as to the beach...?’’ In an essay, he responded: ‘‘I guess it is because I prefer expeditions over vacations, active experiences which teach me about other cultures, trips which require physical and mental preparation and which help to shrink the world so I can better appreciate what is happening in Nepal, Israel, or even Antarctica.’’
