This is the latest hilarious collection of folksy, humorous, and wonderfully wise stories about country life from the bestselling author of The Blight Way. Patrick F. McManus has garnered legions of faithful fans with his monthly column in Outdoor Life and his many celebrated books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Grasshopper Trap and The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw. The humor and warmth of Kerplunk! put the book right up there with the very best of McManus. A rollicking blend of Dave Barry and Garrison Keillor, with a twist of Mark Twain, McManus is an American classic whose wry, curmudgeonly tales appeal to real outdoorsmen and the armchair variety alike. There are nearly 2 million copies of his books in print. The stories in Kerplunk! travel the byways and highways of the Pacific Northwest, bringing to life offbeat, down-home characters who hope their grandchildren can pick the lock on the gun safe because they've forgotten the combination, who know exactly why it costs $500 to make a fly lure that retails for $2, and who aren't afraid to confront the problems of bird dog flatulence.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Emily | 2/19/2014

    " Not my favorite McManus, but there are some gems; "Camping Out with Lewis & Clark", "'Uh-Oh!' (And Other Things Guides Shouldn't Say)", and "The Ordinary" were all laugh-out-loud funny. All stories are reprints from columns written for Outdoor Life, so if you keep up with his columns, there won't be anything new. But McManus is always good for understated humor and an easy read. "

    " Amazing as always. "

    " A collection of stories from an outdoorsman humorist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Marshall Pickens | 1/27/2014

    " I have to admit that these stories have grown a little stale over time and retelling. I remember him being so funny from when I read these books as a kid and now they are just a little silly. But I still love McManus for all the good memories. "
