Cactus Eaters wins relentless profanity award

I am humbled and grateful about winning the first annual MPORB (Most Profanity in Outdoor-related Book) Award, given bi-annually to the author of an outdoors or hiking-related book with the most relentless and gratuitous use of profanity. The judges declared that there were "certainly other hiking books with large numbers of very bad words, but a search through the pages of the Kindle and eBook version of the Cactus Eaters revealed that Dan White's book had more expletives per page than any of the competition.''

Thank you, judges. I am &@$&!$%& grateful for this honor.

Seriously?

Usually I'm serious. In this case it's a late-April fools in honor of an Eng. 71 student who read the book and was giving me a hard time (good naturedly) about the contrast between the fact that I never, ever swear in class and the fact that the book has a bit of salty language.
