about Hunting with Father:
“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.
