(Animal action, nature) Ransom “Doc” Wilcox’s adventures began in Taber, Alberta, Canada in 1907, but he was soon whisked to the back country of Northern California where his family farmed, tended livestock, and sometimes got by via hunting and fishing. Once, when the hunter became the prey—of a charging wild boar—Wilcox stuck a pole he was carrying into the ground and climbed up! Wilcox’s love of animals, music, and the great outdoors is evident in his nature-themed stories (for young and old, ages 10 & up). These mostly autobiographical stories convey courage, devotion, and perseverance with warmth and sincerity.
