 Gudrun Tossing

Two Germans in the Wild, Wild West

American English (AmE) Edition (There is also a German version of this Gudrun-Tossing-book.)

                  EDITOR: JANET M. DAVIS

Travel books about the United States of America often focus on the mighty space, the grandeur of landscapes and sceneries, their multiplicity and fascination – America the Beautiful. And all of it is true.

However, in this charming and amusing book, you will find even more; all the little stories and tales which happen on the sidelines of everyday life, on the fringes of society, and within or surrounded by beautiful landscapes.

All the different characters of people who appear, communicate and then pass by. Events which happen by chance or accident, through fate or even bad luck. They all give the US visitor more than a glimpse into the culture and natural beauty of the country.

What you can expect are vanishing rivers, mystic encounters with legends from the Old West, trash turned to treasure, and park rangers who expect you to do odd things. Yes, of course, you also find the fish stories.

Yarns are spun from the coasts to the hot deserts where the coyotes tell you their tales. Well, there will be some trouble with the police as well. It is the small clash of cultures which makes you reflect, remember, and, in the end, smile.

You hear about all the crazy things you inevitably encounter traveling in and around the United States of America.

It is all written with deep and warm sympathy for the people of this amazing country and, of course, with a good sense of humor and sophisticated irony as well.

Come on; read it and love it!


Gudrun Tossing
is German and a part-time American as well. She traveled extensively within the United States and Canada as a tourist, for business, and visiting her relatives – each time with a greater appreciation of every experience. Throughout their lives, she and her husband have spent several years living and traveling within North America. Now that she has retired from her job as a medical manager in a US pharmaceutical company, she has even more time to travel – preferably within the United States of America.

Beyond superficial similarities, matters of everyday life are often revealed as totally different, and any inclination to dissent comes out as an exercise of brinkmanship.  Suddenly,  questions  arise. For  instance, “Why are the Caucasian inhabitants of Oregon convinced that the cultural history of their country begins with Lewis and Clark?” – or – “Why does Uncle Theo routinely serve the second drink at cocktail hour hopelessly diluted?” | page 12

If anyone asks where we have already  been  within  the  United  States,  we  answer, “Just let us tell you where we have not yet been – Detroit, Tulsa, and St. Louis.” But, there is no denying that a city like Tulsa, Okla., has great potential to be the focus of any satirical episode. | page 13

Our cousin, Jim, is somewhat distressed that I did not mention him more often in my stories. Chin up, Jim; in my next book everything gets better! | page 15

The meeting rooms were located on the first floor. This was very convenient for fishing with your business partners. However, on the conference level, there was the great disadvantage of having no private bathroom to cut and clean your catch. | page 19

“Tell us three Arizona locations you would report  on  in  our  next  issue.”  There  was  nothing  to reflect  on  here.  “Globe,  Steamboat  Canyon, and Show Low,” came my definitive answer, for these were  the  only  Arizona  villages  I  had  never  seen previously mentioned in any edition of their journal. | page 25

But, thank God, he did not complain when I turned our kitchenette into a lab for toad, mushroom and fish toxins. Old Jingle managed to provide me with the necessary laboratory equipment such as glass flasks, distillers and test tubes. Thank goodness he had a close friend who was a glassblower. | page 37

It seemed to us as if every inhabitant of this funky, little town was out on the road and they drove like blind moles. Adhering to the strict speed limit of 25 mph, most of them chose to just drive right down the middle of the road. Paying no mind to traffic wishing to pass, each one drove at a snail’s pace in whichever lane seemed to suit him or her best. | page 46

Slowly maneuvering backwards, the vehicle dragged the lifeless whale away from the tide and toward the back of the beach. There the whale peace- fully lay in solitude. At this point we recognized that it was a grey whale. As the driver of the excavator began to dig a huge hole about 30 meters away from the cadaver, it became immediately apparent that I needed to act quickly. | page 54

I hurried back to my park office and made the decision to contact the press. The very next day, the Vancou- ver Sun featured a story with the following headline: “Grizzlies Back in Stanley Park.” The subtitle read: “Curator intends to shoot them with tranquilizer guns and sell them to the zoo at Kelowna.” | page 64
