  • Don Ainsworth, strongly opinionated collector of leather boots made from every animal from anteater to water buffalo, with whom McPhee crosses the country in the cab of a chemical tanker truck, so loves “manicuring the ship” — the mirror-like sheen of his stainless steel tank — that he pays extra to have it washed in deionized water that leaves no spots.
