      By Michael Perry

      New York Times Bestselling author Michael Perry returns with what he humbly refers to as "a shovel full” of introspective and reflective essays on everything from musky fishing, puking and mountain-climbing Iraq War veterans to the frozen head of Ted Williams. The book includes many of the most memorable essays Perry has written for national publications—from Men’s Health to Backpacker—and features some of his favorite assignment when he was asked to turn his lens outward to tell "the story of another.”
