  • How to Build a Fire


As members of the Greatest Generation, our grandfathers were not only defined by the Depression but also by their heroic service to the country in World War II. Courageous, responsible, and involved, they understand sacrifice, hard work, and how to do whatever is necessary to take care of their loved ones. They also know how to have a rollicking good time.

Sensible, fun, and inspiring, How to Build a Fire offers a rare glimpse into the hearts and minds of grandfathers near and far by sharing their practical skills and sweet stories on how to be stronger, smarter, richer, and happier. Inside are more than one hundred essential step-by-step tips for fixing, leading, prospering, playing, and hosting, including how to
  • buck up and be brave in the face of adversity
  • play hard and break in a baseball mitt
  • bait a hook and catch a big fish
  • look dapper and tie a perfect tie
  • get a raise and earn more
  • write a love letter and kindle romance
  • change a flat tire and save the day
  • stand up and give a sparkling toast
  • play the harmonica and make your own music

  • Loaded with charming illustrations, good humor, and warm nostalgia, How to Build a Fire is the perfect handbook for guys or gals of any age. The first of its kind, this collection of our grandfathers’ hard-earned wisdom will help you build confidence and get back to what’s really important in life.
