A look at life from a Deer Stand

As far as I can remember, my dad has always been an avid hunter and fisher. I wonder how many years of his life that he has dedicated to preparing, hunting and fishing? I spent countless weekends and Thanksgivings in fishing boats or up north for a hunting trip. I had the opportunity to review a book called A Look at Life from a Deer Stand from Harvest House publishers and I was very excited to understand my dad's passion for the outdoors.

Author, Steve Chapman has a love and passion for hunting. This book is filled with his success and not so successful hunting trips. He has taken a subject that I haven't had much understanding or appreciation and has made be more knowledgeable about why men like to hunt. He also engages the reader in understanding God's beautiful creation. In chapter 7, Steve talks about how the sunrise is the earth actually bowing down to sun. The sun does not actually move, but the earth spins on its axis and bows to the sun.  Amazing! What a beautiful picture he paints! 

This book is sure to make you laugh and look at hunting with a different perspective, especially if you are a female. This would be a great gift for the hunter in your life!

Thank you Harvest House Publishers for allowing me to review this book.
