This book, and the stories and tales it covers, was written by one of British Columbia's top big game guides, who is well known and admired by hunters from around the world. Lloyd Cushway was born and raised in the small community of Baldonnel, B. C. Forsaking a formal education, Lloyd Cushway enrolled in the 'school of hard knocks' as the age of fifteen as a horse wrangler. He added many jobs to his resume including trapper, big game guide, prospector, truck driver and millwright. This book is born of some of the many humorous, and often unfortunate, events in his life, which he recounts in a funny and entertaining way. This 2011 paperback first edition is inscribed and signed by the author on the title page 'To Mary & Joe, Enjoy & Best Wishes, Lloyd'. It is in a good condition, with slight folds in the corners of the front and back covers and some minor scratches on the spine. There are a few marks on the outside edge of the book block. The pages are clean and bright.
