Summary
As a follow up to his autobiography, Paddle Your Own Canoe, the star of Parks and Recreation now focuses on the lives of those who inspired him. From George Washington to Willie Nelson, he describes twenty-one heroic figures and why they inspire in him such great meaning. He combines serious history with light-hearted humor -- comparing, say, George Washington's wooden teeth to his own experience as a woodworker. The subject matter allows Offerman to expound upon his favorite topics, areas such as religion, politics, woodworking and handcrafting, agriculture, creativity, philosophy, fashion, and, of course, meat
Summary
The star of Parks and Recreation and author of the best-selling Paddle Your Own Canoe pays tribute to inspiring mischief makers, from George Washington to Willie Nelson, while expounding on such topics as religion, handcrafting and meat
