Forrest signs his memoir, The Thrill of the Chase, at the Collected Works book store in Santa Fe, while his wife, two daughters and their husbands and three of his seven grand kids supervise the operation. Forrest gifted the book store all of the books they could sell because he didn’t want to make any money on the book. Ten percent of the sales price goes into a cancer fund to be used to help some deserving patient.

  1. This was a very kind and generous thing to do! For a man who loves books and history, to promote reading and support a local business in such a way as well as to help another who is diagnosed with cancer is a gift that far surpasses simply donating money. It creates a long-lasting connection with the past, present, and future–a legacy of love. Reading your blog here, you inspire me in so many ways, and I am so thankful that I stumbled upon this page while looking for a definition for the word “fen.” I had never heard it before, and was curious to learn it means “marshy wetland.” This struck me, because so many times here in California we have worked to PRESERVE our various wetland areas for the wildlife, yet never had I heard it called a fen. Your work in encouraging others to get back outside and appreciate what our natural world has to offer is a credit to the name “Fenn” and you live up to the definition of the word, as a wild place of refuge and nurturing for future generations. Thank you, Mr. Fenn, for sharing your good heart and great example of human kindness with all of us!
