More Description

For the past decade, "Men's Journal" has set the standard for travel and adventure writing by publishing the work of America's finest authors and literary journalists. "Wild Stories" collects thirty-two of the best pieces to appear in the magazine, written by its most esteemed contributors, including Jim Harrison, Sebastian Junger, P. J. O'Rourke, Rick Bass, Thomas McGuane, George Plimpton, Hampton Sides, Doug Stanton, Tim Cahill, and Mark Bowden.
Each of the four chapters in Wild Stories showcases "Men's Journal's "diversity and taut storytelling power. "The Adventures" is a series of razor-sharp travel narratives, from a road trip across India on the perilous Grand Trunk Road to a search for grizzlies in Romania. "The Sporting Life" is a look into obscure corners of the sports world, where golf's bush-league wannabes try to make it to the PGA and a group of cyclists out-suffer one another in pursuit of the mythic Hour Record. "Men's Lives" includes profiles of singular adventurers such as Yvon Chouinard and Ned Gillette, and captures the rewards of such quintessentially male traditions as building a cabin on your own plot of land. And "The Reporting" collects definitive accounts of the most newsworthy disasters, as well as riveting dispatches from war zones in Somalia, Sudan, and Colombia, and from environmental hot spots in Alaska and Montana.
Commemorating" Men's Journal's "tenth anniversary, Wild Stories is a diverse and entertaining anthology that explores the magazine's basic creed: Life is an adventure. From the first page to the last, these are stories you'll never forget.
