By Tim Cahill

Cahill (Jaguars Ripped My Flesh) courts intercontinental experience in those accrued trip items. He fishes for pike in Wisconsin's icy Lake Nagawicka (and competes in a minnow-drinking contest at Chuck and Sue's bar). Over the protests of the past due Dian Fossey, he eyeballs Rwanda's now-famous mountain gorillas. And he joins the newshounds flocking to the scene of mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. His pen is stuffed with adrenaline; he batters down stumbling blocks and dares to do the tough, even if this suggests braving the odor of deterioration (Jonestown's "last our bodies to be got rid of have been in this sort of nation of decomposition that bits and items saved falling off'') or surviving a major wind-chill issue. notwithstanding Cahill's humor and machismo should be heavy-handed, and his occasional sexism is tense ("menopausal waitresses'' cramp his type in Oregon), the writer's urge for food for enjoyable and hassle off the overwhelmed direction is exhilarating.
