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
Jumping three barrels like motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel-except they only have bikes
Hangliding with an Army surplus target kite
Wrestling . . . a bear?
Extreme sports lead to extreme fun in new tales from Gary's boyhood. !
