Sorry my posts have not been as often as before. I have been trying hard to organize this massive amount of literary works my Dad left me. I will be uploading some other stories here for download very shortly. I need to complete some technical things on the site first and clean it up a bit and fix the menus etc.

Like many young boys, Henry Prante’s imagination was stirred by tales of big game hunting in the Canadian wilderness.
He loved to share his multitude of stories from his trips, and hopefully this collection of adventures will ignite the imagination of a new generation of hunting enthusiasts, and anyone who would just enjoy a series of good adventure tales.
Join Henry, as he and his friends, go after British Columbia’s fantastic big game — bear, sheep, deer, moose and more!
Our family truly enjoyed eating the healthy organic meat he brought home and we still miss Dad dearly.
