Readers familiar with Randy Wayne White's 'Out There' column in Outside magazine will relish this first collection of his best work: those new to White's delectable blend of adventure, hilarity, and spirit can only be envied for the satisfaction of that first encounter. Whether it's 'This Dog Is Legend,' in which he tells of his cinder-block-retrieving Chesapeake Bay retriever named Gator, or 'Coming to America,' about the stirring - and sometimes terrifying - Mariel boat lift, White never fails to engross us in a life of sun, boats, work, and sport.
