The Twilight Zone of the Huntress is a collection of short stories relaying the author’s adventures over the past 19 years, beginning when she married her current husband. At age 54, Kay Evon Sampson married a big game hunter and soon became one herself.
At 65, she harvested a Kodiak brown bear and a mountain goat on Kodiak Island, and traveled to Namibia to hunt additional animals. She was consequently awarded the Safari Club International’s Diana Award.
Sampson says, “The story of my husband’s experience of being mauled by a huge male African lion and our crash landing in a plane out in the bush in Tanzania the following year is included in the book. My life with my big game hunter has been a ‘wild ride’ over the past 19 years with never a dull moment.”
When it comes to hunting, she believes, “It is much more humane to allow an animal to live out its life in a natural setting and then quickly dispatch it, rather than pen up a cow in what my husband calls a ‘cow concentration camp’ for the sole purpose of raising it to kill for meat and leather.”
Now age 73, Kay Evon Sampson lives with her husband, Roy, in Prescott, Arizona. “This book was written to preserve the stories for our future generations. Seniors may especially benefit from the book as they learn that life doesn’t stop being exciting in old age!”
