It's a short list--the famous ski hills of Wisconsin--that teaches one of life's great lessons: things aren't always what they are cracked up to be. In this collection of humorous essays, Scott Jacobs explores a boyhood of idyllic pastimes and the questions it led to later in life. Winner of a Ben Franklin award for enhanced ebooks.

"Excellent writing, wonderful tales . . . tantalizing stuff that makes readers laugh and tear a bit, a combination that elevates his stories to the read-em-again kind." - Bill Janz, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist
"Very highly recommended . . . an impressive and always entertaining collection of observations and commentaries ranging from 'The Happiest Place on Earth (Disneyland); 'Jesus Has a Bad Day'; 'A Telemarketer's Lament'; 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', and twenty-six more little gems." -- The Midwest Book Review
