The Grasshopper Trap. We could make a wild animal trap out of it, you know, like Frank Buck does in Africa. We could cover it up with branches and leaves and grass, and wild animals would come along and fall into it. Then we could tame them and teach them to do tricks.

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.

By the end of the week, you know the person very well indeed, and may fervently wish you didn’t determine his mental and emotional shortcomings, just in case you are ever forced to spend a week with him at a remote hunting camp. Before committing yourself to a hunt with any new acquaintance, you should first take him on an overnight camping trip, one of the very best of all psychological tests.

One of the funniest writers around... Ever! I've read all of the early McManus books many times over, and still am overcome with laughter every time I re-read them. If you haven't read McManus, and you like the outdoors you are missing out!! My wife knows when I read these stories because I'm unable to stifle the laughter. Others are "A Fine and Pleasant Misery", They Shoot Canoes, Don't They", Rubber Legs and White Tail Hairs, and "Never Sniff a Gift Fish". Join Pat, his Gram, his sister The Troll, the old woodsman Rancid Crab Tree; Friends -Retch Swinney, Eddie Muldoon and his Dad Mr. Muldoon, Pat's dog Strange, Mr. Grogan proprietor of Grogan's War Surplus and a whole host of other characters for some of the funniest reading ever!

What do you get when you tie a chair to the fender of an old truck with baling wire and attach a pole with a gunny sack on the end? Either a grasshopper trap or a speeding ticket. Or both and a great story. Here's another great volume of mostly true* stories about outdoorsman adventures.

*probably made up

Shipping was quick. The book got here before I expected it.

I was very sick after a surgery and was laughing to much reading this book and others by McManus that I had to put it down at time for the tears in my eyes. So funny.

McManus once again weaves a series of stories sure to delight you and tickle your funny bone. He brings back familiar characters from his life, wife Bun, best friend Retch Sweeney, and the old woodsman Rancid Crabtree. Each story stands alone, but they all tie together through the rugged outdoor mayhem which occurs whenever Pat goes hunting, camping or fishing. Lots of fun!

The Grasshopper Trap is one of my favorite stories. Love the characters. I can't stop laughing even during the day I find myself chuckling. What joy these books have given.

Excellent as are all of Pats stories. (I can be informal, we grew up in the same hometown.)

I have had to stop reading Patrick mcManus stories at bedtime as my laughing disturbs my husband's sleep. I have loved his books for years and enjoy them no matter how many times I reread them.
The short story "The Skunk Ladder" alone is worth buying this book! Absolutely hilarious short stories!
