This is probably the most kick-ass story I've seen in a while. My mother-in-law is hardcore Mormon and I can guarantee you she has an idea of how an 11-year-old boy could survive for almost five days on his own in the wilderness.

Here are some interesting facts about David Wilkins, the new U.S. ambassador to Canada: "His first and only trip (to Canada) was in the 1970s when he was in the army Reserve. Wilkins also doesn't speak French, although he did take three years of the language in college."
