Overview

Growing up in western Pennsylvania, Ralph Scherder was attracted to the wild outdoors from when he was young enough to wear Spider-Man snow boots. With his father's taxidermy shop located in the basement directly below his bedroom, Ralph easily becomes familiar with every detail of the taxidermy business. It didn't take long for Ralph to discover that "Psycho" wasn't the best book on tape to listen to while working late at night on dead animals. And the tragedy that befell their shop mouse, Skeeter, will never be forgotten in the Scherder household.

Ralph's talented storytelling easily portrays the camaraderie among his family, friends, and other hunters. His writing also conveys his love for the great outdoors. It is easy to imagine him exploring the wild outdoors of western Pennsylvania; easy to picture the autumn leaves rustling in the wind as he describes them, or a moonbeam on the river early in the morning.

The Taxidermist's Son tells the real stories behind friends and families hunting in the great outdoors. There's always one that got away; but Ralph makes it evident that what is truly important was right there with you, the whole time -- your family and friends.
