Crehorea€™s stories of his youth in 1950s Wisconsin are peppered with engaging characters and a quiet wit. A grouse-hunting expedition goes awry when an eccentric British businessman bags an escaped bantam rooster with a landing net. Crehore's great-grandfather gets in trouble one Christmas when he sneaks a whoopee-cushion under a guesta€™s seat. The elderly Frau Blau gets trapped in an outhouse by a shady auctioneer during a farm sale.
