This is by someone I know, so many of the localities he describes are familiar to me. I especially liked his trying to fish the bog at I-66's exit at Glebe Road. The part about losing his daughter to SIDS is heart-wrenching. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802123023, Hardcover)

Writing for magazines and newspapers for more than twenty years, including two decades at Field & Stream, Bill Heavey has become famous as America’s everyman outdoorsman, unafraid to draw attention to his many and varied failures—from sporting French lavender deodorant to scaring a UPS man half to death while bowhunting in his front yard.

Heavey’s 2007 collection If You Didn’t Bring Jerky What Did I Just Eat?, co-published with Field & Stream, the leading American outdoors magazine, was a resounding success that went into multiple hardcover printings. This new book, again co-published with Field & Stream, collects more of Heavey’s top pieces from the magazine, as well as the best of his writing from the Washington Post and elsewhere. In this far-ranging read, Heavey’s adventures include nearly freezing to death in Eastern Alaska, hunting ants in the urban jungles of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, and reconnecting to cherished memories of his grandfather through an inherited gun collection.

With Heavey’s trademark witty candor, You're Not Lost if You Can Still See the Truck traces a life lived outdoors through the good, the bad, and the downright hilarious.

"From the beloved Field & Stream everyman, a collection of hilarious, insightful, and moving pieces about a life lived outdoors"--Publisher's website.
