Here is a humorous, reflective, and evocative collection of stories of fatherhood, written from the perspective of a young father. These entertaining and tender tales recall a family's journey together, delving into pursuits that drew them close, even as the growing independence those activities fostered in the children eventually eased them apart. Both parents heeded a wise adage about raising children: hug them close, then let them go. The first part was easy; the latter somewhat more difficult. The author, a grandfather now, recalls those bygone years with a mixture of appreciation and nostalgia---appreciation, arising from the joy and love his daughters provided for their parents; and nostalgia, knowing those days are gone forever, living on only in shared remembrances of times past. If you have a son who is, himself, a father, you must get him to read this book!
