Mini-reviews from our fans of Cougar Bob:
This charming tale is full of the adventures of a true western character. Bob Campbell alias ” Cougar Bob” is one of those bigger than life individuals that we seem to grow out here in the mountains of Idaho and Montana the “real west”.
I was aware of the polio Bob had while in the Navy…but not how he single-handedly beat the disease with his determination. He is an example of how a person can survive such a physical setback and persevere the way he has. When I hear the name “Cougar Bob Campbell,” I think of the man he is!
I really liked Close Calls, and purchased a few extra copies for Christmas gifts.
Write on indeed. I just finished reading “Close Calls.” What a good book! It just made each story come alive.
Some great stories about north Idaho and the adventures of Cougar Bob. Funny and some great history of the region.
Please say hi to Bob. I feel like I know him since reading your marvelous book. It’s extraordinary he survived all of those situations.
This collection of heart-warming stories…is a tribute to Cougar Bob, his integrity, his problem-solving skills. This book is an absolute joy.
Got a house full of company about the time we received the CLOSE CALLS book, so I had to steal time in the bathroom, and computer room. I finished it last night. I hope whoever’s reading it now enjoys it as much as I did.
What a wonderful book! It absolutely had us laughing and crying.
I will never, ever give this book away! – 5th grader and Grandson of Cindie P.
