Summary

Summary

Doug Lansky travels the world looking for adventures and reports them with a dry wit in a syndicated newspaper column. This anthology of his writings contains 60 of his adventures, including: fending off hippos with a canoe paddle on the Zambesi River; swimming with dolphins off the coast of New Zealand; riding an ostrich in South Africa; lassoing reindeer above the Arctic Circle; diving for treasure in Key West; wrestling an alligator in Florida; and crossing the Great Indian Desert on a nauseous camel.
