One Inch from Disaster

We rated this book:


One Inch From Disaster is the memoir of a very adventurous rural Canadian. A hunter and fisher, the author tells of his many near-death experiences and his rough and violent childhood. For example, once, he tries to get his boat fixed but gets caught in a storm and has to jump to safety. Another time, he accidentally backs a bulldozer onto a pile of explosives! One Inch From Disaster is written like it was experienced by the author, in the form of various short tales about his encounters. In my opinion, this made the book very well written. This is not a book aimed at kids or teens. Although it is not overly graphic, it includes many don’t-try-this-at-home moments, obvious violence, and deleted expletives. Adults, however, would enjoy this book if they like books about adventurous hunters. For a certain audience, One Inch From Disaster is a great book to own and read. Public library systems should own a copy, along with adults that like outdoor wilderness adventures.
