“A hilarious compilation” (Los Angeles Times),A Fine and Pleasant Misery gathers twenty-seven witty, cautionary tales of the outdoor life from beloved humorist Patrick F. McManus in a collection edited and introduced by Jack Samson, long-time editor-in-chief ofField & Stream.

The great outdoors have never been rendered as hysterically as in the reminiscences—true and exaggerated—of Patrick F. McManus. If you’re thinking about getting back to nature, the surreal adventures chronicled here will make you think twice about giving it all up for a life of camping, hiking, and hunting.

Patrick F. McManus (1933-2018) is the author of novels, plays, and more than a dozen collections of his humor columns fromOutdoor Life and other magazines. There are nearly two million copies of his book in print, including his bestselling The Shoot Canoes, Don't They?;The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw; andA Fine and Pleasant Misery.
