How Angel Peterson Got His Name
Synopses & Reviews
WHEN YOU GROW up in a small town in the north woods, you have to make your own excitement. High spirits, idiocy, and showing off for the girls inspire Gary Paulsen and his friends to attempt:
• Shooting waterfalls in a barrel
• The first skateboarding
• Breaking the world record for speed on skis by being towed behind a souped-up car, and then . . . hitting gravel
• Jumping three barrels like motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel, except they only have bikes
• Wrestling . . . a bear?
Extreme sports lead to extreme fun in new tales from Garys boyhood.
A New York Times Bestseller
