Author Gary Paulsen relates tales from his youth in a small town in northwestern Minnesota in the late 1940s and early 1950s, such as skiing behind a souped-up car and imitating daredevil Evel Knievel.
This is a great book of true short stories. I love reading stories from this book out loud to kids. It always gets laughs, and comments like "No way, that can't be true!". - Miss Christy
