I have nothing against hunting--I worked for a gun company years ago. But, there are so many tales of hunting caribou and moose that they all started sounding the same. But then, there is no information about how the family survived after his terrible accident. He says he was given a small settlement, but goes on to explain what he bought with that money.
The book was a little too much about him and not enough about their joint lives. I would have loved to have known how the cabin they lived in was laid out. It isn't that big-- where did everybody sleep? Early in the book he talks about how his wife was willing to go to Alaska with him. Suddenly, they are taking off for Alaska and there are three kids that were barely mentioned earlier.
If you do read this book make sure you write down the names of the people and how he knows them. There were many times that names were mentioned later and I couldn't remember who they were.
Robert Hilliker lived an interesting life and cheated death several times. I am sure that he would do it all over again if he could--even the scary parts.
The way it was laid out or formatted for the Kindle left MUCH to be desired. I would start a new chapter and read a few paragraphs, "turn" the page and suddenly be in a whole new chapter with no connection to what I had just been reading! Once...maybe OK. Twice, not acceptable. Even more times? Yes, and very irritating! The book is too good to miss out on so much! Guess I will have to buy a paper version so I can read the "rest of the stories"!
The book is more of a remembrance. It is neither profound nor great literature......and is not meant to be. Rather, it is a look at the very successful life of Hilliker and his wife Betty.
I am pleased to have read the book.
