Publisher's Summary

America's most hilarious sportsman returns with this collection of insights about youth, the great outdoors, and the philosophy of fileting fish. When best-selling author Patrick McManus looks at a subject, you're sure to come away with an outrageously new perspective.

In "Muldoon in Love" McManus examines how third-grade crushes can have a disastrous effect on show-and-tell. In "The Big Fix" he explores the insidious relationship between women and flat tires. In "What's in a Name, Moonbeam?" he welcomes into the world a new grandchi ... er ... a new small relative.

Norman Dietz's droll narration of these and two dozen more adventures by the author of How I Got This Way and The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw will have listeners - and maybe even a wolf or two - howling.

Laughed so hard I cried!

Where does Rubber Legs and White Tail-Hairs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I was laughing so hard at work in the service area that I had to turn off my iPod because customers out front thought I had lost my mind! Fun!

well, I love McManus

McManus is a longtime favorite of mine. I came into contact with him through my mother and father who read the outdoor life articles and chuckled hilariously. being a self-taught woodsman myself, I always enjoy how comical is tales of woe with hunting and fishing are

First McManus I ever read

My grandfather gave me this book years ago, and I have read everything McManus has written since. If you don't laugh, you may be in serious trouble...

McManus again delights with his trademark wit

Patrick McManus is, in my mind, a national treasure. These collections of stories are a guaranteed grin for hours on end. This collection is no exception. I cannot recommend it more highly. My only question is why we have not seen this turned in to a TV show? Buy the book if you enjoy laughing.

Not funny

Narrator was fine; but this book does not have the quality of humor as McManus' other books. My husband and I were put off. I'd return this.
