It is often said that life lessons are more often 'caught' then 'taught' and this collection of memoirs reminds parents that our children are always watching, often laughing, and occasionally learning. Written to honor his father Gerald in his eightieth year, this memoir highlights 55 (the 'double-nickle') childhood interactions between the author and his father written during the author's fifty-fifth year. Sometimes funny, often poignant, the reader will likely read and remember stories from their own childhood.
From the author of Sutter's Gold and Bullwhip McCann comes five stories that are of the old as well as the new West. There is action, romance, humor and adventure spread throughout the herd.

So, hang your hat on the peg, kick off those dusty old boots, and read a spell.
