Thank you brother, this sounds like a beautiful piece of literary work and sorely needed in many American families these days, that is grounded on the primary societal factor or unit; the family. Going back many centuries the Japanese firmly taught and believed that the family is the primary unit of any great society and civilization, without which none of it is truly possible.
I have to admit I hadn’t read this book but will look forward to it; although the name Bunyan rang a loud bell for me, and got me thinking back to my elementary school days which I can distinctly remember how I was captivated by the legendary story of “Paul Bunyan,” who I bet was the inspiration for the 1960’s Jimmy Dean smashing hit that my dad introduced me to when talking about some of his all-time favorite recording artists of the Country genre who were way up on the list with Johnny Cash from out in the Big Country, where this big hit came from; Big Bad John!
Getting into Paul Bunyan just now I want to paste two headings in a search that stand out and are also inspirational as part of Great Americana all in place with the Great Christian Heritage of our Great Nation under God!
First here is the Wikipedia encapsulation: Paul Bunyan is a giant lumberjack and folk hero in American and Canadian folklore.
His exploits revolve around the tall tales of his superhuman labors, and he is customarily accompanied by Babe the Blue Ox. The character originated in the oral tradition of North American loggers, and was later popularized by freelance writer William B.Wikipedia
Birthplace: Various claimed, Bemidji, Minnesota, Akeley, Minnesota, Brainerd, Minnesota, Bangor, Maine, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Oscoda, Michigan, Ossineke, Michigan, Manistique, Michigan, St. Ignace, Michigan, Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Wausau, Wisconsin
Modern Day Paul Bunyan
“Paul Bunyan is a giant lumberjack in American folklore who has long been the hero of the American logging camps. His exploits, which revolved around the tall tales of his superhuman labors, were told by the fires of bunkhouses in the northern camps from Wisconsin to Maine, from Minnesota to Oregon, to Washington and California for decades.” legendsofamerica.com/ah-paulbunyan/
“Paul Bunyan is a larger-than-life folk hero who embodies frontier vitality. He is a symbol of might, the willingness to work hard, and the resolve to overcome all obstacles. He was popularized by newspapermen across the country in 1910 and has been a part of the American culture ever since.” https://americanfolklore.net/folklore/paul-bunyan/
Well sorry I didn’t know much about the book, yet; but wanted to add some good family Americana to this great reading venue you offered here! Great idea!
God bless you.
God bless America!

John Bunyan.Family Duty. Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, July 12th 2016. 35 pp.

Want a booklet on a biblical view of family? Specifically would you want to have something to read concerning the roles of a husband, wife, father, mother, and children? This is one that I would recommend. I read this in one sitting and pulled nearly an all-night reading since it was spiritually edifying. This booklet is by the famous preacher and Christian author John Bunyan. It is amazing to think that he died in 1688 but his work is relevant for the 21stCentury; that is a testimony of how when writers focus on being biblical it always is timely.
The booklet is divided into four parts. Part one is on the duty of fathers, the next part is duty of wives, then…
