More Information
Wander out there with the hilarious and spirited author of the highly acclaimed Batfishing in the Rainforest.

Whether hes engaging in aerial combat or riding an Iditarod sled, Randy Wayne White is one of Americas most adventurous travelers. He studies anti-terrorist driving techniques, dives for golf balls in a pond at a country club, hunts his fellow man with a paint gun, ice fishes for walleye with X-ray-stunned nightcrawlers, and poaches Panamanian crocodilesor goes pig shooting in the Australian outback. With self-effacing optimism, White captures the joys and fears of wandering the earths surface with an eclectic cast of weirdo fellow travelersa frog that wont jump, a group of expatriate Brits whove developed an interesting cure for road jaundice, and even a mad Australian scientist.
Though he rarely finds what hes looking forsuch as the legendary landlocked bull sharks of Nicaragua, or the secret to successful winter fishing on a Minnesota lakehe develops a Zenlike passion for the means and a rare ability to revel in the rib-aching humor of each exotic trip.

In the end, White leaves the reader mesmerized by the potential of undiscovered places and the promise of endless adventure in unfamiliar territory, from Florida to Bangkok to Borneo, and everywhere in between. An icon to the new breed of thick-skinned, high-endurance adventure travelers of the 1990s, Randy White uniquely extols the pleasures of being alone and on the move.
