Gary Paulsen's slapstick tales capture the wonderful madness of growing up in a small town in northern Minnesota, when high spirits, showing off for girls, and general idiocy led Gary and his pals to attempt some amazing stunts, including:

  • Shooting a waterfall in a barrel
  • Breaking the world speed record on skis
  • Hang gliding with an army surplus target kite
  • Inventing the skateboard
  • Jumping a bike through a hoop of fire
  • Wrestling - with a bear?

Wacky, daring, just plain nuts - extreme sports lead to extreme fun in new stories from Gary's boyhood.

    " Angel Peterson, Gary Paulsen, and their friends tried a number of daredevil stunts in their thirteenth year, and they are chronicled in hilarious detail in this book. Have you ever wondered what could happen if you tried to ski while tied to the bumper of a car? What about shooting a waterfall in a barrel, or wrestling a bear? Gary Paulsen's stories of his youth describe a time when the Army/Navy store had target kites that could be used for hang gliding and circuses had tents where you could pay a quarter to wrestle a trained bear. This is an excellent book for young readers looking for an approachable, funny book. Recommended for ages 9 to 13. "

    " Very fun book, I think younger boys would enjoy this. Though I don't think the parents would like them getting any ideas. "

    " Memoir documenting Gary Paulsens's childhood and the escapades of him and his friends. Angel broke the speed record on skis by being towed behind a car. Wrestling a bear to impress girls. Flying a giant kite and inventing hang gliding. The list is entertaining and long. "
