Synopsis: Alva Harris lived a life of adventure, beginning as a young boy in North Carolina where hunting, fishing, and the natural environment was part of his everyday life. This delightful memoir chronicles the first eight decades of one man's quest to find meaning and purpose in his life. Not only is the story a personal recollection of his experiences, the author also dazzles the reader with his descriptions of the remarkable natural world around him which inspired his lifelong passion for the environment.
This 396 page book will seem much shorter as the story absorbs you into Harris' world and his adventures become your own.
From the Back Cover: Alva Harris' life has been a joust with the status quo. He claims that it will have been too short to learn all he'd like to know and experience within our wonderful universe. Yet the adventures he has traversed within his lifetime would fill the bucket lists of many. Being blessed with a father who answered the question, "Where did I come from?" with "A buzzard laid you on a stump and the sun came out and hatched you," Alva was destined for a life of adventure long before he understood the concept. From his beginning as a penniless Depression-era child, the author takes you on his journey as he treks his way through being a plow-boy, hunter, trapper, taxidermist, commercial fisherman, biological collector, gold miner, military serviceman, ecologist, and professor. You'll travel through natural environments from North Carolina to Alaska over a span of eighty years and live through a myriad of experiences from the thrill of encountering bear in the wilderness to the reality of having to hunt or fish for your dinner or go hungry. "Born on a Buzzard's Stump, The Epic Saga of a Man and His Myth" will bring a sense of adventure to everyone who reads it - from real life adventurers to those of us who just dream about them.
