About the Book

"My memories of growing up on a ranch are shared with a special comrade, Pete, when we climbed into our favorite tree. We became great friends but World War II interrupted. Even so, our tree remains significant to both of us."

About the Author

Donovan Hamilton is an Oklahoman, born on his grandparents’ ranch-house, which is noted for being part of Creek Indian history. But he is not Indian. A farm boy, his destiny was soon evident because of World War II, with time spent in the Philippine Islands before he saw duty in the U.S. Military Occupation of Japan. This is the background of his second novel, “All The Time in the World”.

He has been fortunate, studying U.S. and Oklahoma History and traveling abroad including a career with the airline industry and the teaching profession.

Now retired and a full 86 years young, with a strong interest in Scotland, he enjoys creative writing. Earlier he was given a lifetime membership with Theatre Tulsa for his lengthy work in their archives. A veteran of World War II, he has honored the USMC with his one-man show on IWO JIMA. Born on the Perryman Ranch south of Jenks, his home is in Tulsa.
