Patrick F. McManus, the “funniest guy in theOutdoor Life andField & Stream gang…offers another bag of whimsy in the Great Outdoors”* withThe Grasshopper Trap.

In this collection of thirty zany stories, spoofing camping, fishing, and other outdoor recreational activities, McManus shares his hilarious wilderness misadventures. From facing an angry bear with an unloaded gun and the folly of running a boat while it’s still on the trailer to not questioning the ingredients found in camp cookout cuisine and the best methods of catching grasshoppers, no one knows how to express Mother Nature’s sense of humor like Patrick F. McManus.

“It’s enough to tickle the most rabid member of the National Rifle Association.”—*Kirkus Reviews

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.

“Everybody should read Patrick McManus.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A style that brings to mind Mark Twain, Art Buchwald, and Garrison Keillor.” —People

“Describing Patrick F. McManus as an outdoor humorist is like saying Mark Twain wrote books about small boys . . . the funniest writer around today--indoors or outdoors.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“McManus captures the innocence most of us lose when we become grown up, and reading him you can't help recalling similar times and events in yor own life.” —Booklist
