Parks and Recreation actor and Making It co-host Nick Offerman shares his humorous fulminations on life, manliness, meat, and much more in this New York Times bestseller. Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman—who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson? Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking—he runs his own woodshop—Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman’s childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois—“I grew up literally in the middle of a cornfield”—to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally. It also offers hard-bitten battle strategies in the arenas of manliness, love, style, religion, woodworking, and outdoor recreation, among many other savory entrees. A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessons and rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety, Paddle Your Own Canoe will not only tickle readers pink but may also rouse them to put down their smart phones, study a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.
Walter Conrad, the hero, is unexpectedly reduced from affluence to poverty, and compelled to fight his own way in life. Undaunted by misfortune, he makes up his mind to "paddle his own canoe," and, declining, the offers of friends, sets to work with a resolute will and persistent energy, which command success in the end.--Provided by author in preface.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was born in 1970 in Illinois. I was raised by my family, who created the environment I needed to grow up in. My parents, Catherine Ann Offerman and Frederic Dames Offerman, grew up near each other in the countryside outside of Minooka, Illinois. #2 Minooka is a small town in Illinois, about an hour from Chicago. It was primarily a farming community until the commuting suburban population reached it. Now, many inhabitants are considered soft. #3 My parents, Dick and Bonnie, were married young and had me when they were twenty. They rented an old farm for one hundred dollars a month plus utilities. It was right in between the two farms they grew up on, and that’s where I lived for my first five years. #4 My first job on the farm was shoveling pig shit in the barn basement for my grandpa Mike Roberts. I loved reading about how the pioneers would slaughter their pigs, and I always named my favorite pigs.
