Times Picayune A gem of a refreshing memoir. Washington Post Wow! What a wonderful childhood you had.

Christopher kept his hands on the reins, easily in the boy's line of sight. These southern boys, even young ones, were a good shot. Especially ones in the country like this. They learned to walk with a rifle in their hands.

Daddy, Tell Them We Dont Shoot Bambispins a true account of what one man did to introduce his sons to the basics of hunting and firearms safety, resulting in major quality time during their formative years. More important than tips on getting started, the author underscores strengthening father-son relationship. The authors closeness to nature is accented as he enthusiastically paints an accurate portrait of the average hunter. Included also are the agonies and disappointments of the hunt, often swept aside by the hunter, as well as some laugh out loud stuff hunters encounter. The author offers a 53-year writing background, with many published credits (including hunting) as well as tenure as editor of regional newspapers. He is past-president of the South Carolina Press Association.

These are stories taken from the personal diaries, letters and newspaper clippings, and word of mouth accounts of my father's life just behind the combat lines of North Africa, France, and Germany. This is not a "I jumped out of a B-29, then stormed the beaches" type of book. These are the more day-to-day accounts of the personal lives, backgrounds, and feelings of a group of men. For example: How do you stay "seated" on a toilet on a ship in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean when the ship is riding 30- to 40-foot waves? You take your pants belt, loop it under the back of the toilet, then across your lap (If you happen to be seasick at the time, then you really have a problem). How do you bathe approximately 2000 men who have just spent 30 days on a ship with rationed fresh water? You run them through a human "car wash". What do you do when you're sick to death of eating dried, powdered, canned and reprocessed food? You go out and shoot a couple of wild boars (and save a guy's life in the process even after he did something real stupid.). How do you put out a fire in a wooden boxcar on a train in North Africa and you have no water at your disposal? You pee in it. What do you do with a dead Frenchman in the middle of Paris? You drop him off at the nearest police station.

I had seen such boys there, and I knew—well, there was one who was something like that, whom I would have given the world to see, ... “Well, Master Cabell, I know your breed pretty well; I'm from—well, I've met southern boys before.

Working alone, to start with, I filled three pages of legal pads with two columns per page with notes on events in my life. The title of the book came from the incessant questioning by my daughters for stories of my life, and of the lives of those near and dear to me. In retirement since 1988, my wife and I have spent the winters in a deluxe country club complex in Florida and our summers on our 11-acre farm in Connecticut. I played golf, spent afternoons in the condominium pool, and, following advice given to me by my dad's brother, a doctor, I have a three-ounce martini every night to keep the blood thin and the heart relaxed.
