I met the author at a signing in Boyne City. Ted, do you go anywhere else for signings? We wouldn't want you getting too worldly now, we need Volume II and don't want you getting ruined in the outside world. It's a funny book, and every word is true. He is NOT exaggerating! If you read this book and don't think it's funny, it can only be because you are FROM northern Michigan. Otherwise, I think you'll get a big chuckle.

This book is great. It is silly, but very funny, and a good way to get an easy, clean laugh. The surprising bonus are the two short stories at the end of the book. These short stories are some of the best I've read and that includes Hemingway, who spent his summers in Horton Bay.

Format: Paperback
a heartwarming and "fun loving" book; however, the two additional great bonus stories ("The Last Frontier," and "Once a Man, Twice a Child," had me crying all the way to the end. They were good tears though, the kind that cleanse the soul and make you feel all better when the reading is done and the book is closed.
Author Ted Walker seems to have picked up where Ernest Hemingway tales of the area left off. This is "must read" for those who enjoy Northern Michigan's colorful and charming personalities.
For any of you traveling this summer to Horton Bay (yes, it is a real place) stop in the Horton Bay General Store and hear about Ernest and Ted first hand from the locals who have been known, to "chew the fat" with strangers. If you plan to visit in the fall, catch the annual Ernest Hemingway Festival. Information on this can be found by writing the Chamber of Commerce Petoskey, Michigan 49770.
P.S. In the current issue of National Geographic Traveler, I understand their is an excellent interview with Ted Walker regarding Horton Bay and his unforgettable book, "We Eat Our RoadKill."

Teddy's at his best with the high jinx of the Horton Bay crowd. A must read for those who like lite,ironic humor. An ernest Hemingway in his own mind. tom erber

We reside in Port Charlotte, Florida. My next door neighbor had visitors from Michigan. They live in the Petoskey area in Michigan. They told of a book titled "We Eat Our Roadkill". We said "what?" It was written by a very funny man who they said comes from a place in northern Michigan called Horton Bay. This was one of the funniest books we've ever read!! They also told us that supposedly this book was written about actual happenings in Northern Michigan. We highly recommend this book as it was delightful, funny and very much in the "real world". Everyone ought to buy this book! It's a winner!!!!

If you know anything about Horton Bay when you start reading this book, you will say to yourself, I didn't know that happened, then you read on.
This book is written in such a way that it makes you wonder, did that really happen in Horton Bay. The author has such an imagination that it's amazing he has not been institutionalized yet. I started the book and could not put it down until the last page so make sure you have a couple three hours free before you open it. That's how we talk in Michigan. A couple three is a few.
