Publisher's Summary

The beloved humorist and bestselling author returns with his most riotous collection of essays to date.
Starting with his trademark outdoorsman's wit, Patrick F. McManus's newest collection ponders the strange allure of the RV, the existential implications of being lost, the baffling tendency of animals to outsmart those who wish to hunt them, and the singular pleasure of doubling the size of every fish one doesn't actually catch.
Combining the curmudgeonly voice of Dave Barry and the innocent tone of Garrison Keillor, McManus brilliantly captures the everyday absurdities that comprise our existence. Alongside his humor, McManus's inimitable vision consistently evokes a childlike wonder at the natural world. Even if we are running low on food, the compass is broken, and we are fairly certain we have just spotted a family of Sasquatches frolicking in the treetops, The Bear in the Attic makes the outdoors seem wildly irresistible.

Buy the other one

The first chapter is broken on this one. Great book, but this is a broken copy and completely ruins the punchline of the first story. I unfortunately own both, so I'm putting this here so you (and I) know the glitched one from the good one.

A great story teller - will leave you laughing

Joe

Fourty years ago I read his early books to my kids, in this book, he mixes in his personal life with his zany friends. I would recommend this book to those that want to learn about his early life and how to tell storys.
