Hey Jim buddy, after lunch how about if you, Cousin Jack, and I head to the back of the farm and do some target practicing with the 22? Uncle Willy sensed that his 12 year old nephew, Jim, was ready to be introduced to shooting a rifle. The long-lasting nephew-uncle relationship that began with brook trout fishing was now going to involve grouse and deer hunting. Their many hunting adventures led to a strong bond for each and a mutual love for hunting. The stories are told and illustrated with genuine enthusiasm and realism, taking us into the forest and providing a real feeling of participation. Jim learns how to fire a rifle without flinching, where and how to hunt for grouse and deer, how to train a grouse dog, what wood ticks are, and the value of a compass, especially when lost. Jim and his buddies go grouse hunting and end up shooting chimneys and each others caps. Many trips to the hunting camp are enjoyed where Uncle Willy tells stories about buck fever. After being misplaced in the family for 7 decades, Jim's dad's 30-40 Krag is uncovered and Jim is excited to be hunting with it. At 92 years old, Uncle Willy has a keen memory for their hunting experiences. He says, Jim, I remember when you bagged your first grouse with your single shot 22 on that old logging road by Black Crick. I was ready with my 20 GA in case you missed. But you didn't flinch and you didn't miss. That was a good shot.

Hey Jim buddy, after we finish the farm chores today, what do you say we go down to the crick and see if we can catch some brook trout. Uncle Willy sensed that his 9 year old nephew, Jim, was ready to be introduced to brook trout fishing. Thus began a long-lasting nephew-uncle relationship that led to a strong bond for each and a mutual love for the brook trout. Their many fishing adventures, often including Jims buddies, are told and illustrated with genuine enthusiasm and realism, taking us to the stream, beaver pond, or lake, and providing a real feeling of participation. They catch, clean, fry, and eat brook trout on the crick bank. Together they build a log raft from which they catch brook trout in a beaver pond. To gain access to even more fishing sites, Jim helps Uncle Willy build a canvas-covered canoe. Jim and his buddies search out a secret beaver pond and are mesmerized by dozens of brook trout rising for flies. Weeks later they hear about a hidden lake and decide that it too must be teeming with large trout. So, they pack food and fishing gear, and after hours of trudging through brush and mud, find the lake and view its crystal clear water. These adventures bring the boys together in body and mind. Finally, Jim, now near retirement, brings his 86 year old Uncle Willy to the beautiful trout stream that flows cold and clear through his own property. They catch trout, enjoy each others company, and reminisce about their experiences 50 years earlier. Uncle Willy says, I remember when you caught your first trout from Crooked Crick. It wasnt so big but it sure was exciting. And Jim says, I remember when we built a log raft to fish that beaver pond. You caught that colorful 12 incher the first evening and it slipped between the logs back into the water. You laughed and said, Dont worry, well catch more, and we sure have.

Love and the Loveless (1958) was the seventh entry in Henry Williamson's fifteen-volume A Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight spanning the years from the late Victorian period to the Second World War. The year covered by this novel, 1917, was perhaps the darkest of the Great War, with widespread mutinies in the French Army after the disastrous Nivelle offensive. Phillip Maddison is now a young transport officer, tending pack animals, surviving amid devastation and death. His courage, sustained by poetry, by comradeship, by the comfort of whisky and water, is perhaps unnatural; but amid the charnel house of battle he endures, in a way of life so alien to those at home that it might be the dark side of the moon. 'Williamson's style is romantic, though rarely sentimental, and his sensuous response to nature is fresh and surprising.' Anthony Burgess, Ninety-Nine Novels: The Best in English since 1939

The novel is about the Kaufmann family, spanning three generations between 1858 and 1976. Peter Kaufmann emigrated to South Africa from Germany and became a renowned wainwright. He was also involved in the construction of the first railway line between Cape Town and Pretoria. His son, Willy, became a politician and was later appointed high commissioner in London. For many people Arabia holds something strange, something mystical. OPEC imposed a worldwide oil embargo in 1973 that affected South Africa as it did most other countries. South Africa was running low on oil reserves and urgently needed a lifeline! After the lifting of the embargo the following year, the South African government entered into negotiations with one of the Arab oil-producing countries for assistance and proposed the delivery of crude oil in exchange for gold. Behind the scenes in London, the South African embassy played a low-key role, and Willy Kaufmanns grandson, Gnther, who served a stint as a diplomat at the time at the embassy, was also involved. However, an unfortunate incident that shocked the Arab world prevented the proposal from coming to fruition!
