Some of my earliest memories are of time spent hunting with my dad, and fishing with both of my parents. And of course being taught how to garden by my mom and grandparents. These early lessons have made me who I am today. My love of the outdoors is, above all else, my reason to be.
Learn the story behind these rams and over 500 more taken from the
province of British Columbia.
Wow! What an incredible read. Bill has managed to bring to life the stories of L.S. Chadwick – ‘The Chadwick Ram’ and A.J. Stone – The Great River & the Black Sheep.’ He made us feel like we were right on the adventure with them. The photo sections are remarkable and entertaining.
I was finally able to get a digital copy of this new book, Dream Rams of BC, and I spent half the night up with it. Wow. It is even more than I had imagined. Congratulations to Bill Pastorek for telling a story that needed telling. In the Chadwick story I love the format of writing in the first person; it’s like the reader is right there listening to the storyteller. That Chadwick ram story is awesome and I know that every reader will spend many hours curled up with this book.
In the last year, as the various chapters started to come my way for proof reading, I realized that this was shaping up to be THE sheep hunters collector book. A book like no other. I had never seen an author novelizing the story of what is certainly the Holy Grail of all sheep hunts, the hunt for the Chadwick Ram. Having now seen and hunted much of that same territory, I was easily transported back the 80 plus years since that famous expedition.
This is a book that gets Three Readings, if not more. I raced through it the first time, like a ravenous hunter, just off the mountain, tearing into a plate of fresh backstrap. Bill Pastorek has written a book for the ages, capturing the past in British Columbia, from the halcyon days to the present. This book portends the future, a future with the rams of our Dreams. It is a must read.
Bill Pastorek's book 'Dream Rams of British Columbia' is a book like no other. The attention to detail, depth of information, pages of unbelievable photos alone, and the captivating stories are a must read for any mountain hunting enthusiast.
This may be the best sheep book ever written. Well done!
