You're Not Lost if You Can Still See the Truck: The Further Adventures of America's Everyman Outdoorsman
Publish Date: 2014-12-09
Author: Bill Heavey
Writing for magazines and newspapers for more than twenty years, including two decades at Field & Stream, Bill Heavey has become famous as Americas everyman outdoorsman, unafraid to draw attention to his many and varied failuresfrom sporting French lavender deodorant to scaring a UPS man half to death while bowhunting in his front yard.
Heaveys 2007 collection If You Didnt Bring Jerky What Did I Just Eat?, co-published with Field & Stream, the leading American outdoors magazine, was a resounding success that went into multiple hardcover printings. This new book, again co-published with Field & Stream, collects more of Heaveys top pieces from the magazine, as well as the best of his writing from the Washington Post and elsewhere. In this far-ranging read, Heaveys adventures include nearly freezing to death in Eastern Alaska, hunting ants in the urban jungles of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, and reconnecting to cherished memories of his grandfather through an inherited gun collection.
With Heaveys trademark witty candor, You're Not Lost if You Can Still See the Truck traces a life lived outdoors through the good, the bad, and the downright hilarious.
