The author of A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg and Pecked to Death by Ducks gives new meaning to the words "going to extremes" in this exhilarating--and frequently hilarious--collection of adventure travel writing. "Cahill . . . (writes) with the precision ofJohn McPhee and Joan Didion tempered by a Monty Pythonesque sense of the absurd."--San Diego Union-Tribune.

User Review  - Paul Kaperick - Goodreads

I read another book by this author that I loved, but this is not that kind of book. There is no purpose to this except the author's own glorification. It reads like a very bad guitar solo. Read full review
