“I just finished reading Hunting with Father and enjoyed it very much. It took me back to those years in Ash Fork during the early 1950s hunting with my father. . . .I have wonderful memories of campfires, and roughing it in all kinds of weather. It was the only thing the two of us ever did together when I was growing up.. Whenever I drink coffee diluted with Carnation canned milk, I always think of him. I’m sure Alexander will have many wonderful memories from the things learned while hunting with his dad, too. 

Another part I enjoyed was the descriptions of the different areas of the state. I’ve been in all of those places you mentioned either in a pickup or on horseback and the descriptions were excellent. 

Thanks for sharing your story with me. I doubt if many youngsters ever get to enjoy such a close personal relationship with their father, especially in today’s busy urban society. Alexander is a lucky guy…and so are you.”--Marshall Trimble, Arizona’s Official State Historian 

Hunting with Father is an endearing and beautifully descriptive narrative of a man and his son—traveling side by side, sharing life, laughs, love—and answering the call of the wild.  Share these stories with your own son—you’ll be glad you did.
