T is correct. I have purchased several of Gene Hill's outstanding books on-line. You can find them "used" on Amazon or Ebay for under $10.

A few include:

a Listening walk
mostly tail feathers
A hunters fireside book
outdoor yarns and outright lies
tears and laughter

Gene wrote a wonderful column filled with both wisdom and humor just like his books. I still have a few that I treasure.

Hi Cathy
Well this goes way back, but I taught your daughter Patti at Hopewell school. I believe you and Gene had just gotten back from Africa and you made a presentation to my class.

For Cathy Hill:
Good evening to "The Chairman of the Board!" :-) Mrs. Hill, please know that there are many, many of us who read, re-read, and re-read over again your late husband's works. Upon his passing, I wrote to Field and Stream words that remain today just as true, "I deeply regret that I never got to meet that gentle sportsman." Here's a term that I think describes Gene Hill as a sportsman: CLASS! My best wishes to you and your family.

I got my first Gene Hill book when I was 12 and have been collecting and re-reading them ever since. In addition to having had Labradors, I now have a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and I was happy to see that the Hill's had one as well. I guess I can't be too far off the mark. Having dogs and kids to hunt with makes his writing all the more special. F&S was better when they had some writing that was at least somewhat reverent. And as much as I appreciate Heavey as a funny guy, I don't think "classy" is a term I would use for him as I would for the late Mr. Hill. Perhaps I am wrong- I hope I am.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

Steve

This is a late post but if Mrs. Hill see's it I hope it makes her smile. My late father loved Gene's writing and had every book. In fact he ordered one I believe right from Gene himself and Cathy sent a short note with it. I'll never forget it. When I was sick back in 87 and very close to leaving this life my family read me Gene's books while I was unconcious. I just want you to know how much I appreciated Gene and how much my father did as well. Gene wrote the way my Dad felt about dogs, hunting and life.

I never met Gene Hill but I feel as though he was one of my best friends. His stories make me laugh, cry, worry and anticipate the coming seasons. I read the stories to my children in front of the fire. I read them to my wife at night while she is trying to sleep because they are to good to enjoy alone. Often while I am in the field Gene's words and stories come to mind. I miss Gene Hill and am a better person for have read his work. The fall is coming soon...I am sure that I will think of him again this fall...and should my wife or children ever tire of his work...I will read it to the lab as we sit in front of the fire. I am sure he will enjoy it as much as do.

What an honor to have Mrs Hill respond to a question...and I am also one of the devoted faithful that loved Gene's writing and would swear he stole the words right out of my mouth and the thoughts out of my mind. Good health to you and your girls Mr Hill !

My father gave me a Gene Hill book as a boy. I never met Mr. Hill but feel as though he is an old friend. And just like an old friend months or even years can go by between visits but when we finally do bump into one another at the book case we pick up right where we left off.
