Billy Barnstorm could be sub-titled "Troubles With Girls" as Joel Vance's hero negotiates his teenage years with usually hilarious, sometimes moving, encounters with various girl friends. Along the way he interacts with various characters in Birch Lake, the northwoods Wisconsin town by the lake for which it is named, including his nemesis Scuz Olson, the town drunk Charlie Pete, his high school coach, his knuckleballing, guitar playing friend Rusty... and even the President of the United States.

About the Author:

Joel Vance is a veteran of 21 years as a writer with the Missouri Conservation Department.  He has freelanced since the 1960s and has won many writing awards, including the Outdoor Writers Association of America Excellence in Craft and also that of the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers.  He is a past president of the Outdoor Writers, has been honored with all three of its major awards.
         Vance and his wife of 54 years, Marty, live in the country on a dead-end road in western Cole County with six Brittanies. 

Review:

"A current of humor runs through everything I've read by Joel Vance, and Billy Barnstorm is no exception.  It's  a wonderful trip back in time, and by no means to a simpler time, at least for a boy coming of age.  The ending is powerful and perfect."

- Pat McManus, Author of Kerplunk!, Into the Twilight, Endlessly Grousing

"As a humorist Vance succeeds where others fail because he understands that slapstick is like wasabi - a dab is great but a glob deadly - and because he writes about real people we care about and identify with. This book is up there with the best bad-mood cures I know about."

- Ted Williams, Conservation Editor, Fly Rod & Reel

"This is vintage Vance--which means that it's earthy, hilarious, fast-paced and quick-witted, and packed with characters and incidents you can't forget. I loved BILLY BARNSTORM."

- Nick Lyons, Outdoors Book Publisher

"Billy Barnstorm will make you wince with recognition at the embarrassing parts of growing up better not recited to the grandchildren. Don't start to read this book after 9 p.m. You simply won't put it down until it's finished."

- Jo Schaper, River Hills Traveler
