Sample Chapter

Not too long after that, both families and our parents went on another camping trip. We all gathered around the camp fire and again shared stories. This time it was about our growing up. Jack’s father was the first to share his story with us.

He started with how he and his older brothers loved to go hunting in the fall. The, woods (forest) were where they would always go. He Continued, my brothers told me that until I was older I could only use their 22 rifle. He related a story about one time they were tracking rabbits in the snow. When one was finally in sight, his brothers all fired their shot guns. Not a single shot hit the rabbit. The brothers at the same time became very upset, when I fired their 22 rifle and hit the rabbit. They made me carry the dead rabbit back to the house.

Strange sounds around me were getting louder and louder. I couldn’t remember which direction I came from. I tripped over tree roots and vines thinking they were snakes.

Boy, did I ever get a lecture about being foolish and being in the wood after dark. My Dad wanted an explanation! I made up a story, but I didn’t tell him about the tree. I later did cut the tree down and used it to make my Dad’s desk as a birthday present. After I surprised him with the desk, I apologized about the story I told him. He just laughed, (The real mystery in the forest is the last story)
