It seems odd in retrospect, but McManus's stories about growing up in north Idaho were one of the primary reasons I chose the U of I more than two decades ago. As a youngster in Alaska, those tales resonated deeply and made an impression that lasts to this day.

I'm kinda bummed, so I think I'll blow the dust off the McManus collection and settle down for a few days of chuckles. I will certainly be thinking of him when the time comes to strap on the backpack and hit the high country this summer.

Yes Mr. McManus' passing was very sad news for me. I found his writing to be very entertaining and I enjoyed many hours of reading his books.
