Into the Twilight, Endlessly Grousing

Book Review
Outdoor Life magazine columnist Patrick McManus has been compared to Mark Twain. Into the Twilight, Endlessly Grousing demonstrates that he isn't, but McManus will suffice until the next Twain comes along. In this book, the outdoorsman extraordinaire is doing what he does best--telling fish stories, getting into scrapes with buddies, occasionally waxing philosophical, but grousing just as often.

McManus is easily the equal of Dave Barry or any other contemporary humorist, for that matter: When I think of all the times a Stupidity Alarm could have saved me from committing a Stupidity ... Here's one instance that comes to mind.
My children: "Daddy, please buy us a horse! Please, please, please, please!"

Emergency Toilet Paper digs into the mind of the sportsman and pulls out all that makes them, umm, "special". It also helps to prove long-debated theories of the outdoor world; such as bears on the high plains, aliens just waiting to abduct anyone with a six pack and a mind for a fishing trip, and the actual existence of a caring spouse married to an outdoorsman… OK, OK. That last one may have been a little far-fetched, but if there are any spouses out there that want to at least appear as though they care; try picking up some Emergency Toilet Paper for your beloved outdoorsman. However, be careful, you might...
