Teddy Roosevelt's Ranch Life & Hunting Trail.

Great read about TR's time in the US west at his ranch on the Little Missouri River, N. Dakota.
He visited in late 1883 for a 15 day hunting trip, loved it so much he purchased a Ranch and some cattle.
With the passing of his first wife and mother on the same day in early 1884. He left for the Ranch.

Read a really good book a month or so ago, called Star of the North.  About life in North Korea.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

Also by Robert Pike- Tall Trees, Tough Men. Another one I like is called A Book of Country Things as told by Walter Needham. Most of what I have are out of print like the ones you used to get from Lindsay. Unfortunately, between time and attention span they're mostly reference books now. I have to admit that sometimes for something quick to read and not hard to follow kids books can't be beat. April Morning, Hessian Soldier, The Broken Blade. Some of those though you have to remember that it's entertainment, not a history textbook
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example

Very, Very good.

@moodnacreek  No, I hadn't seen it yet but thanks. It looks like it's exactly the kind of thing I want to see
