ByDon Laubach


Hernandez, the love-lorn used donkey? Mushroom people? Foot races with moose? Big bugs in your bedroom? A PVC tree? Yep, they're all true tales. And they're all very very funny! In this book, veteran outdoorsmen and authors Don Laubach and Mark Henckel tell the tales you really want to hear about hunting and fishing, camping and hiking. These are not stories heavy with intricate tactics for taking trophy bulls or giant trout.

This time, it's the humorous stuff that happens along the trail and the interesting characters who join them on their outdoor adventures that make up the stories of Short in the Saddle. Best of all, Don and Mark invite you to tag along and enjoy the fun. If you enjoy reading the lighter side of the outdoors, you'll enjoy Short in the Saddle.
