the last book I ever read (Denis Johnson's Seek: Reports from the Edges of America & Beyond, excerpt seven)

from Seek: Reports from the Edges of America & Beyond by Denis Johnson:

Eric Robert Rudolph is wanted for every bombing that somebody else wasn’t already wanted for. He’s charged with creating explosions that killed one person and injured a hundred others during the summer Olympics in Atlanta in ’96; damaged the Northside Family Planning Services and the Otherside Lounge (described in the papers as a gay nightclub) in January and February of ’97; killed an off-duty policeman and maimed a nurse at the New Women, All Women Health Care Clinic in Birmingham in January of ’98. Witnesses around the Birmingham crime scene remembered seeing a Nissan pickup. Agents traced it to Rudolph. Rudolph took to the mountainous Natahala Forest outside the town of Andrews in Cherokee County, North Carolina, where he’d lived off and on since boyhood.
