We need your help to maximize the impact of the Idaman book release. The publisher (Hancock House in BC, Canada) needs a few reviews from people in the cattle and ranching industry. It would especially be helpful to have one or more reviews from people who have name recognition in those circles. We would send a PDF of the book to these folks and ask them to read it and write a concise paragraph or two about the book. These reviews would post at the ordering page.

If you know someone who fits this description, would you be so kind as to give me their name and contact info? You can email me at gbrumbelow@gmail.com.

There may be folks like that on this thread. If Idaman were still with us he could likely point them out. Anyone who could help with this would do his widow a great service.

Thanks very much.

Earlier today I received word from the publisher that we are anticipating a March 1 release.

You can pre-order now at https://www.hancockhouse.com/products/m ... f-the-road.

As we get some reviews they will show up there, but I reckon the readers of this blog don't need reviews. :-)

It occurs to me to mention that the book does have lots of pictures, but it does not include a lot of Idaman's pictures of individual specimens. Such pictures were a big part of Idaman's posts and I'm not sure what happened to them. Didn't want to raise expectations about those pictures only to have someone order the book and then be disappointed.

I joined CT after this thread came along. I had never seen it nor read it. It was with great enthusiasm and enjoyment that I read it over the last week. Wow. What stories. This man who I never met really LIVED life. And what a life he lived. I look forward with much anticipation to the opportunity to read his book.

I haven't been on this website for years. I just sat down with my 11 year old son and told him about this incredible thread. I was so happy when I read there's a book out. I just ordered it. :banana:

A lot of the original pictures by Mr. Hook in this CT thread were originally hosted at Rancher's.net.
M Gravlee may be able to recover them so they are still visible here in this thread.

This is the url (a link to one of the missing pictures)..
originally captioned:
A nice string from a lake near Relay.
(I assume they were fish..........or maybe a string of horses?
Image
As you can see, they were available on Rancher's hosting app.
Contact Mr. Gravlee or Mod2 and maybe the photos can be restored back into the thread....

Just want to remind everyone that the sale price will be going away soon. To order, to to https://www.hancockhouse.com/collection ... f-the-road

Even the full price is a sweet deal compared to Amazon at $34.95.

The Amazon "Look inside" shows the table of contents and many of the pages.

The book has lots of pictures that never showed up at Idaman's blog, pictures of the operation, the land, the family, hands, etc.

As with every blog, Idaman wandered around telling his stories. The book brings the material together into eight chapters that tell the same stories but in a new, very readable and enjoyable fashion.

Enjoy!

So when do those of us who ordered it at least 2 weeks ago expect to see the book?....
