In a previous post I told you about an ebook that has been written by Ryan Grassley. I finally got around to reading it and I recommend it to anyone living in Panama and wanting to live the adventure of going from sea level to the top of the Volcán Barú.
I say “live” the adventure because the book is published using the new iBooks iAuthor software, which produces ebooks for the iProducts of Apple. This particular book has close to, if not more than, a whole hour of videos taken on the journey.
What Ryan had to do was to position his camera at various locations and then ride through the area, then he had to retrieve his camera and find the next location to tell his story. Incredible. Only a fellow his age with a touch of insanity would have take on this project.
He starts out the lower Barú portion with two other companions. Ryan made it to the finish. Live through his falls. Live through is night camp out. Live through his being able to see the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans. Wow. I was tired just living the adventure vicariously.
If you own a Nook or a Kindle or other ebook reader, this may be your reason to buy an iPad. After all the New iPad is has been announced and will soon start deliveries. It also demonstrates a lot of the authoring features of iBooks iAuthor. For $2.99 you can’t go wrong.
You can buy Ryan’s eBook HERE.
Here is a video preview of what you will find in the book.
