Ok guys, this book, A SACRED PLACE, Memoirs of a Female Hunter, isn't just a "chick" book. I know the title says Memoirs of a "Female" Hunter, but we are all alike basically when comes to the passion of hunting, right? True there are some emotions involved, and guys don't usually like to show emotions Well, there is that one part about a "monthly" and yes I talk a little bit about love and there is a tiny bit of romance, but men like romance, especially when it's at deer camp, wouldn't you agree? I know my husband would agree. It must be something about the smell of sweat after a two hour walk and the lack of shower, or the way I carry my rifle and help him drag a buck or pack a 75lb. severed bull elk head off the mountain top. There is nothing more sexy than a chick in the woods with a gun, and she knows how to use it. My husband must agree with that. After all, we've been married nearly 30 years. (I was very young when we married.) He hunts with me, my mom, my sister, our daughter, and my niece. He and our 10-year-old nephew are the only males in this hunting party.
I agree that this sort of sounds like a chick book, but trust me it's not. Throughout the pages I share my passion for the hunt, talk about God and my faith in Him. But I also talk about fast trucks and running from the law and rifles and ammo and hand guns, a lot about guns and ammo actually; and the thrill of seeing "the big one". There is tracking involved, following a blood trail, and field dressing and a little more blood, but don't worry readers with a light stomach and non-hunters, I try to tread lightly in the gore department. There are a few guy experiences, and horse experiences. I talk about deer and elk and big fish stories and fast horses and family and kids, great big bucks and massive bulls. Now that sounds like a GUY book to me.
It's not a book about bragging what a great hunter I am, or what a fabulous shot I just made, I personally hate those stories. It is a book about learning, and growing, and believing, and trusting and overcoming, and love and passion and family and heritage. It's a book about 50 years worth of memories.
I've had non-hunters read this book and love it. And I've had fellow hunters read it and love it. I've actually had more men readers then women that I know of. One non-hunting, animal loving, heterosexual man told me it was a great book. He said he didn't want to put it down to go to work and couldn't hardly wait until he could read again just to see what happened next. That was quite a complement.
So there you have it in a nut shell, what ever that statement means, my personal review of my new book
A SACRED PLACE, Memoirs of a Female Hunter. Now don't just sit there...Order it now and get busy reading. I want to hear your opinion.
