With his previous collections, A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg and Jaguars Ripped My Flesh, Tim Cahill earned a reputation as the funniest, weirdest, most reckless travel writer working today. In Pecked to Death by Ducks, the master of dangerous living continues his wacked-out, hell-for-leather adventures in an all-new collection of hilarious gonzo travelogues. As ever, Cahill's wanderings take him around the globe and teach him many things: how to drink with the Aussies (trying to match them beer for beer is not a good idea); a method for developing acute claustrophobia (crawling on your belly for two weeks in total darkness while exploring the world's deepest cave); and the best way to take a nap while observing a grizzly bear at close range. Other excursions take Cahill to the oil-well fires in Kuwait, on a wave-rolling kayak trip in Baja, and to the most remote hinterlands of Guatemala, where he discovers the world's most ghastly outhouse - the hideous "throne of terror." With great wit and excitement, Pecked to Death by Ducks delivers vicarious thrills so vivid you'll feel like you're there - but glad that you're not.
