The unsinkable forty-room polystyrene iceberg cum floating vacation retreat where Claude Ste. Nervous, the Quebec Styrofoam king, cruises the Arctic Ocean in high summer and, riding on his tamed polar bear, hunts for baby seals
These and dozens more of that new breed of swashbuckling post-millennial Midases dedicated to self-indulgent fun whatever the cost in money, ecological mayhem, environmental devastation, and other such nuisances are celebrated in This Land Was Made for You and Me (but Mostly Me), this lavishly illustrated chronicle that nobody expected or even wanted, but that Bruce McCall and David Letterman went ahead and created anyway."
