Funny Stories from Alaska|
It was a dream assignment! Collect wit, one-liners, tall tales, practical jokes, and funny stories for a book about Alaska humor. In MOOSE DROPPING AND OTHER CRIMES AGAINST NATURE, author Tom Brennan writes about the indignant tourist who hears of moose droppings and wants to know from what height the moose are dropped; about the practical joker in Sitka who creates a near-panic when he charters a helicopter to drop a load of old tires into the crater of a nearby dormant volcano, then sets the tires on fire; about the equally engaging tales of people, animals, and politicians.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A native of Massachusetts, Tom Brennan is a newspaper columnist and witty fellow who cut his teeth in journalism on the police beat.
