Rate this:
Short, funny anecdotes from a natural born recycler, do-it-yourselfer, tinkerer and pack rat all rolled into one. They start during the Depression, when young Caplette learned how to make a perfect slingshot and go after gophers in South Battleford, Saskatchewan. They follow him down the road when he gets the bright idea to ride his bicycle to the West Coast, and keep following him through the Cariboo and the Okanagan until he seules down in North Vancouver. Meanwhile, meet some of the people in Caplette's life: a visiting Newfie fiddler ("Kin ya card a gitar bye?"), a guy who thinks he can fool BC Hydro, Leon and his pet skunk, and some buddies who have the nerve to steal Caplette's own little chunk of Ripple Rock.
