Terrific tales & quips from the humor field, by Henry Beard, P.J. O'Rourke, Ian Frazier, Lewis Grizzard. The widest universe of subject--birddogs to deep sea fishing to raucous duck dinners to how a guide handles a bore to the only humor covers on (ever to grace) Outdoor Life. Spiced with never or rarely seen pieces by Bruce Cochran, James Thurber, Gene & Barry Wensel, Joe Bob Briggs, Jean Shepherd and others, and jokes by Johnny Carson, Homer Circle & Milton Berle. Cartoons by the smartest illustrators & the history of outdoor humor on radio and the small & big screen including the best Elmer Fudd/Porky Pig/Daffy Duck and "that wascally wabbit" hunting cartoon shorts, ribald songs, tall tales, atypical Ole & Sven jokes, novelty fishing lures and bumpersticker humor. From high literary to low ribaldry, an authoritative colelction for quiet chuckles in the appreciation of superb humor writing alternated with guffaw-producing comic tales of what can go wrong (and right) in the pursuit of our favorite field sports.
