Recounts the author's experiences as he travels in search of the landlocked bull sharks of Nicaragua and shares his secrets of successful winter fishing in Minnesota
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Whether he's engaging in mock aerial combat or riding an Ididarod sled, Randy Wayne White is one of America's most adventurous travelers. In this collection he studies anti-terrorist driving techniques, dives for golf balls in an alligator-infested pond at a country club, hunts his fellow man with a paint gun, ice-fishes for walleye with X-ray-stunned night-crawlers, and goes pig-shooting with Dr. Pavlov. With self-effacing optimism, White captures the joys and fears of wandering the earth's surface with an eclectic cast of weirdo fellow-travelers - a frog that won't jump, a group of expatriate Brits who've developed an interesting cure for 'road jaundice,' and even a mad Australian scientist. Though he rarely finds what he's looking for - like the legendary landlocked bull sharks of Lake Nicaragua, or the secret to successful winter fishing on a Minnesota lake - he develops a Zen-like 'passion for the means' and a rare ability to revel in the rib-aching humor of each exotic trip. (6 1/4 X 9 1/4, 236 pages)
