About the Book

Come Autumn involves the growth of a land ethic that evolved in a Midwestern hunter’s mind between youth and old age. The book is a compelling series of hunting memoirs during, primarily, the last half of the Twentieth Century. It is fraught with numerous anecdotes and human interest stories. These anecdotes and stories are merely representative of many small town boys who grew to manhood during this era – boys who looked down barrels and through cross-hairs while they combed natural surroundings with family members and other friends.
