When a kid starts to become a man he also discovers girls and the kid in this book has more misadventures with his girl friends than anyone should have to endure. He also discovers the dubious allure of inadvertent contact in the arms of a stripper named Flame LaTouche and learns that horses and girls don't mix--neither do randy dogs and parades. Mixed in are encounters less ribald, including a spooky outing with an old Ojibway Indian and a romantic one with a young Indian girl. Laid in the north woods of Wisconsin, it should resonate with anyone who ever had a less than ideal prom date.

Meet the Author
I am a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism (BJ, 1956). I worked three years on the Montgomery (AL) Journal, mostly on the copy desk, but also as a reporter and occasional editorial writer.
I then spent 10 years as the sports editor of the Mexico (MO) Evening Ledger, then 21 years as a writer for the Missouri Department of Conservation. I began freelance writing in 1967 and have been a fulltime freelance writer since I took early retirement from the Department in 1991. I am generally recognized as the best-known writer in the history of the Missouri Conservationist magazine, which has the nation’s largest circulation among resource agency magazines (more than 300,000).
I have written regular columns for several national magazines, including Audubon, North American Fisherman, Gun Dog, Bassin’, American Hunter and Wing and Shot. I have sold literally thousands of articles to magazines ranging from outdoor to travel to general interest. I’ve also done regular feature reporting on radio and have done some television work. I also am a photographer and generally illustrate my magazine writing.
For 15 years I taught a week-long outdoor, nature and environmental writing workshop, called Wildbranch, at Sterling College in Craftsbury Common, VT. More recently I founded the Goldenrod Writing Workshop in Missoula, Montana, sponsored by the Outdoor Writers Association of America. I have given other writing seminars to conservation agencies and writer groups in Michigan, Wyoming, Ohio and Kentucky and many in my home state, Missouri.
I have published seven books.
