Title: Paul Schafer Book
Post by: Bob Palmer on December 15, 2009, 10:28:00 AM
There were rumors a book was being drafted about Paul Schafer...I seem to recall it was being written by Bob Windauer (the father of Dave who runs Schafer Bows). Has anybody heard anymore about it? I hope it's true and forthcoming!!!  :pray:

Paul was a man of very few words. I only spoke with him several times, but feel very privileged to have done so. A book on this guy is tops on my want list.

Here I thought you were referring to Paul Schaefer's "Book Adirondack Cabin Country".

I've been hoping that a book would be written about Paul. I have always be in awe of his accomplishments. I'm looking forward to reading  his story....Greg

Ladies and Gentelman.. There has been an update on the Paul Schafer book. I spoke to Bob over the weekend and he wanted me to pass along an update on the much anticipated release of the Paul Schafer book.

The Paul Schafer book that has been carefully crafted by Bob Windauer is close to being finished. The text is done and Bob is working diligently on the cover along with other images that are being integrated throughout the book. Bob gave me the green light to share this update just this morning and I can tell you the Schafer book will be well worth the wait. I have had the opportunity to read through it, it's truly an amazing read. Bob has done an amazing job writing this book, stand by for a release date!

Great news!! I wanted to update this thread about the Paul Schafer book by Bob Windauer. I spoke to Bob this evening on the phone and he informed me that he is close to having the book finished and ready to print. I am expecting the book will be printed and released in the next month or two. Once they are printed, this thread will be updated on where to purchase a copy. This book has been in the works for a number of years, the excerpts I have read I can tell you it will be worth the wait.

This is great news...I just reread Barry Wensel's story on Paul from Bowhunter magazine in '86, or maybe '87? Also the various tributes after he died.

I've told this story before, but many years ago my wife and I visited Paul at his home near Kalispell. He was gracious and friendly. My wife afterwards said she had never seen me so quiet and nervous. Heck, I had memorized that Bowhunter article and I was talking to the man himself.

Two copies are headed my way once they are available. Better make that three!

I just read the threads on the main board about Mr. Schafer and it brings it all back.  If these snippets are so inspiring, what will the book do?  Surely, it will inspire another generation.

Got the books...wonderful to see his story finally told. Did I miss whatever happened to his son Hunter? There were updates on the rest of the family and wondered whatever happened to Hunter. Nothing specific, just something like he's married and happy living out west would have been enough.

Have had the book for months and read it twice.  Great book and really accurate as I had the privilege of living in Great Falls during a lot of the material and knew a bunch of the people mentioned.
