About This Book
Ransom “Doc” Wilcox’s adventures began in Taber, Alberta, Canada in 1907, but he was soon whisked to the back country of Northern California where his family farmed, tended livestock, and sometimes got by via hunting and fishing. Once, when the hunter became the prey—of a charging wild boar—Wilcox stuck a pole he was carrying into the ground and climbed up! Wilcox’s love of animals, music, and the great outdoors is evident in his nature-themed stories (for young and old). They convey courage, devotion, and perseverance with warmth and sincerity.
