Batfishing in the Rainforest : Strange Tales of Travel and Fishing. Randy Wayne White has more hits than misses in this book of essays. He has an authentic American take on the world, with a Floridian's amusement and acceptance of foul weather, tough dogs, tougher kids, and bugs of all kinds. by Randy Wayne White. This book is a keeper, and we are lucky it has been reprinted. His mysteries are real good, too, but somehow I wish that he would take his gift more seriously. By that, I think he could be a major American literary force, if he didn't have to pay for braces, college tuition, and fishing gear.

This book is a collection of his writing for Outside, and it's a rather mixed bag. I'd categorize the articles into 3 classes - the slightly Reagan-esque, where Jane Fonda is still Hanoi Jane, where Navy SEALs are the most precious fruit of the human race, and where he is incredulous to the fact that Peruvians tried to mugg him in some dark corner of Lima. Rather annoying all in all to my liberal sensitivities. Then there is a second group of essays, the ater pieces.

What Randy Wayne White means by batfishing is something that can happen to anyone casting for fish with an artificial lure. It befell Mr. White's guide, Rudy Dodero, when he hauled his popper off the surface of a river in Costa Rica and backcast into the jungle darkness behind him. "Into the annulated haze came these shadowy creatures, little rats on wings vectoring wildly toward the lure," writes Mr. White in the title piece of his unusual, entertaining.

If you're a Randy Wayne White fan, this one, and "Last Flight Out" should be on your list. "Batfishing" goes into more detail about the Tarpon Bay Marina. You'll love it!

Batfishing in the Rainforest is one of the funniest, most insightful and heart touching collections of essays I've ever read. After reading Mr. White's newest novel (The Mangrove Coast) I have now gone on a search for every book he's written, and Batfishing in the Rainforest is unlike anything he -- or anyone else -- has done. Mr. White wrote most of these essays while he was a fishing guide, he says, at a lovely old marina on Sanibel Island, the famous vacation spot in Florida. From that little marina, he ranged far afield, traveling around the world to write quirky stories for Outside Magazine. The first story in the collection, a tale about his hilarious dog, Gator, is absolutely unforgetable and well worth the price of admission. The stories which follow, although occasionally uneven, are always uniquely written, often funny and always intelligent. Mr. White is one of those writer we all love to "discover'. DAH
