3rd Edition!!!

     . . . longtime river guide, sea kayaker, draft horse teamster, freelance editor, and author of the international bestselling outdoor guide How to Shit in the Woods: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art (with more than 2.5 million copies sold in 8 languages) and the Wild West memoir Barefoot Hearted: A Wild Life Among Wildlife.

All tastefully-written illuminations, questions, and rants are welcome. (Tasteful, of course, is elastic in this case, but we’ll try to mind most of our manners.

Shooting the Shit will post in a relaxed fashion, leaving us all time for rivers, mountains, oceans, and that old thing “making a living.” I realize that anything snail-like these days is bucking the trend but the offbeat path, now and again, screams to be followed.

      How I know it!
