Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Gary's boyhood.

A New York Times Bestseller

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

"Readers will be drawn to the term 'extreme sports' but the story is more accurately one generation's version of homemade fun in the days following the Korean War when 'radio was king' and the great outdoors served as the playground."
