The Barefoot Bandit is the riveting story of Colton Harris-Moore—Colt for short. At the age of eight, young Colt was accused of stealing a bicycle, but he didn't stop there. Colt graduated to bigger trophies—cars, speedboats, and even airplanes, though he’d never had a flight lesson or even flown as a passenger. After escaping from juvenile prison, he was hunted for two years by everyone from local police and the FBI to Homeland Security and the Canadian Mounties. Time called him “America’s Most Wanted Teen.”
He broke into homes to do his laundry and order things on the internet, but was finally caught on July 11, 2010, after a spectacular trek across the country to the Caribbean, in one stolen plane after another. Set against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest islands, where software millionaires co-exist with back-to-the-land survivalists and hippies, this is a compelling tale of a neglected child who outfoxed the authorities, gained a cult following, and made everyone pay attention.
