Overview

Tales from Booger Branch is a book for anyone who loves being in the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and camping. It is an enjoyable, hilarious accumulation of life experiences that will make you laugh and long for a simpler time that once was the norm. Those not accustomed to life in the wilderness will certainly appreciate the fact that author James Burnham and friends are still alive and well.

One can only wonder how so many things can go wrong on so many excursions for Burnham due to weather, carelessness, the absence of knowledge, or just pure bad luck, yet he still experiences the times of his life. The reader of this book will find that for Burnham, fun comes in the form of sadness, physical pain, feeling miserable, friendships, and the occasional reward in the form of an elk, frog legs, a catfish, a fox, etc.

Anyone reading this book can surely appreciate and identify with sharing unique experiences with friends and family - maybe not quite as many or as exciting as James Burnham, but then again you're not from Booger Branch.
