Wow….what an incredible article about the life and death of Micah True (a.k.a. Caballo Blanco) from the New York Times. For anyone who has read Born to Run, this is an absolute MUST READ. It contains lots of details on his life that were not in the book, lots of information on the search and rescue attempt in the Gila Wilderness, and some insight into the relationship between Caballo and characters from the book like Barefoot Ted and the author Christopher McDougall.
I think it would also be very interesting for anyone else who heard about the death of Caballo, but didn’t understand his background.
