"Describing Patrick F. McManus as an outdoor humorist is like saying Mark Twain wrote books about small boys." - Atlanta Journal-Constitution

If you have ever camped, backpacked or went fishing, or done silly things as a kid, this book is laugh out loud funny all the way through.

Another of Patrick McManus's great books. I loved it. Humor without any four letter words to spoil it. He writes tongue in cheek style of the adventures of young Pat and his sidekick Retch Sweeney. You will feel like you are there with them in their attempts to torment Pat's older sister, Troll., or when Rancid tried to teach them to catch grasshoppers . What fun!!

Patrick McManus is the king of outdoor humor. His tales with crazy Eddie Muldoon and Retch Sweeney May not be sophisticated enough for you high-brow types but for us good ol' country boys they are always good for a laugh.

As a dedicated Brombeck reader, I really got the humor in this book. I'll look for more books by Mcmanus.
