WHEN YOU GROW up in a small town in the north woods, you have to make your own excitement. High spirits, idiocy, and showing off for the girls inspire Gary Paulsen and his friends to attempt:
- Shooting waterfalls in a barrel
- The first skateboarding
- Breaking the world record for speed on skis by being towed behind a souped-up car, and then . . . hitting gravel
- Jumping three barrels like motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel, except they only have bikes
- Wrestling . . . a bear?
Extreme sports lead to extreme fun in new tales from Gary's boyhood.

"The stories are fresh and lively and will especially appeal to reluctant middle-grade readers."--School Library Journal, Starred
