A Small Bequest is the comic account of two city boys and their summer expedition through Michigan's Upper Peninsula in 1934. What begins as an innocent camping trip becomes a disaster of hilarious proportions for author Ed Love and his best friend, George French. Exploring Grandfather Perry's legacya€”two sections of land in the sothwest quadrant of Luce Countya€”the boys are beset by porcupines and poison ivy, blowouts and breakdowns and soon realize that the north woods scrub is no place for Eagle Scouts. Love is a keen observer of the American scene, and A Small Bequest is his witty reminder that all is not beautiful in the wilderness.When we were still in the ninth grade he had gone down to a junk yard and bought an old 1919 Model T Ford coupe for ten dollars. George had to load it ... another piece of junk. In all the time Ia#39;d ever known him there was never a day when there was not a car in some stage of rebuilding in his back yard. ... I wasna#39;t much of a mechanic myself, but I could follow instructions and I could run errands for him.
