    Steve Chapman, musician and writer, is probably best known for his book A Look at Life from a Deer Stand: A hunt for the meaning of life. which since its publication has sold near 300,000 copies.  I first purchased a copy of this book for my husband, and some years later I noticed the book on one of our bookshelves and "repurposed" it by passing it along to a son in his late teens/early twenties -- a time when I really wanted to encourage his faith walk, but words didn't always come easy between us
    .When  I saw that Steve Chapman had gathered a collection of stories focused on sharing the relationship
    strengthening aspects of hunting, I wanted to read the book, hoping I would find another gem to pass on to my sons.  The stories within were written by Steve himself, as well as by professional wildlife photographers, writers, and just plain hunters.  Some of the stories had stronger faith messages than others, but all were entertaining.  I believe that hunters, especially young fathers, will really connect with the writers.  While nonhunters may be shocked by the story of the young dad, who bundled up his two year old daughter to take her out for a few late afternoon hours in the deer stand, I really wasn't/   It was either that or stay in the house, miserable.  As I read, I briefly thought about the dangers, but then I refocused on all I knew about the safety measures ingrained in my own sons and I was assured that the writer knew the same.  I also thought about the sturdiness of today's tree stands, the crispness of an autumn afternoon,  and the mixture of God's paintbox in that wooded setting. I thought about the story that my husband tells of having a little sparrow quietly sit right next to him in the tree stand, but mostly I thought about the sweet smile of my own four year old granddaughter as she used to share her precious version of her own afternoon "sits" with her daddy as they watched for a big buck during fall bow season.  Life with dad in the deer stand can be a window to God's world, his desires for our lives, and our joys and responsibilities as parents/children.

    Filled with short stories, illustrated with pencil drawings, and under 180 pages, this book makes a nice gift for the hunter who reads, or perhaps for one who doesn't read much.  I read the book all at one time, but I could easily see it being the type of book that could be read in pieces over weeks or even months.  I received an e -copy of this book from Harvest House Publishers and NetGalley for review purposes.  All opinions are mine.
