The second collection of Cahill adventures that I've read, and I loved it. Reading most tales, I make a mental entry into my "things I never want to do" list, but reading about someone else doing it is fun and absorbing. ( )

Wry, someone self-deprecating, and off on the most amazing adventures! Tim Cahill's essays are fun, exciting and intriguing.

Rollicking adventure travel, collected from various magazines which Cahill wrote for. Written in the 80's, some of his insights regarding Rwanda and what was about to happen there make me wonder why, exactly, no one was listening. Very well-written and hardly dated at all. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679770798, Paperback)

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.
