Tales about a lifetime of living near the edge are related on these pages and are presented with plainspoken words that don't need underlining. From being shot down in Laos to meeting a prehistoric family it's all here in untainted color. Forrest admits to making his share of mistakes but whispers that even at age 83 none have weakened his ardor for the chase.

Once Upon a While 3rd

A new, revised edition of Forrest Fenn’s book, “Once Upon A While.” This revised third memoir showcases the original 39 mini-episodes in the life of Forrest Fenn, plus a new 40th story. Forrest corrected some text and included more of his stick-figure drawings that made readers chuckle in the original release. Stories from jumping off a terrifying bridge as a teenager, riding a fast horse through mountain passes and nearly everything else in-between is included in this beautiful new volume.
