For many boys and girls, the opening day of the hunting season is very exciting! Tavey is finally old enough to hunt, along with an adult. Tavey's dad, a multi-generational sportsman, lovingly guides his son through much than just hunting. Through the larger canvas of the natural world, Tavey truly discovers a lifetime passion, but in an unexpected way.
What People Say
"Despite its title, this is not really a book about hunting. It's about accepting differences between us. This is a beautiful book of fathers and sons who may not agree but still find their way to mutual respect and love." - Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys/October Sky
Tavey's First Hunt is a nostalgic reminder of the gift of conversation. A story about fathers and sons; family, forged outside of bloodlines. It's about how each human, along with every animal, is but a single part of an exponentially larger whole. - Book reviews by J.V Poore for Goodreads
"A charming story that respects our outdoor heritage and captures the wonder of a boy's first hunting trip with his father. But Tavey learns a person can respect traditions without being limited by them. In the end, Tavey's walk in the woods reveals a path, not only for himself, but for generations who follow. —Robert Saunders, Charleston Gazette-Mail "Outdoor Pursuits"
