Tougias’ journey begins when he buys a remote mountain-top cabin in the hopes of becoming a real 'mountain man,' and gets much more than he bargained for. Misadventure follows calamity in his encounters with wildlife, the locals, and nature. In There’s a Porcupine in My Outhouse, Tougias reveals his deepening respect for and connection to the natural world and how this transforms his ideas on all aspects of life. As his love of the outdoors grows, so does his feeling of responsibility and stewardship toward the environment. A funny, honest, and personal account, this is the perfect book for anyone who loves the outdoors and loves to laugh." Winner of the 2003 IPPY Award in the environment/ecology/nature category.
