By Tim Cahill
Cahill (Jaguars Ripped My Flesh) courts intercontinental experience in those amassed commute 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 overdue 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 full of adrenaline; he batters down stumbling blocks and dares to do the tricky, even if this suggests braving the smell of degradation (Jonestown's "last our bodies to be got rid of have been in this kind of country of decomposition that bits and items stored falling off'') or surviving a major wind-chill issue. even though Cahill's humor and machismo will be heavy-handed, and his occasional sexism is stressful ("menopausal waitresses'' cramp his variety in Oregon), the writer's urge for food for enjoyable and bother off the overwhelmed course is exhilarating.
