Tom DeBruyckere has never met a stranger. That’s a running theme in Reminiscing in the Bear Den, where he shares stories of the people he’s met, the people who have filled his memories, and the people who became his friends. These interactions shaped his world view and this collection of stories illustrates how, no matter how long the person remained in his life, the connection remains strong. Both passing acquaintances and close friends are given equal billing, described in such a way that the reader will feel like he’s known these people his entire life. DeBruyckere’s love of life, family and friends is evident, as is his desire to share his affection with readers and inspire them to live a life as joy-filled as his has been.
