To Own a Dragon: Reflections on Growing Up Without a Father by Donald MillerGood dads are almost as rare as fire-breathing dragons--or at least it seems. New from Donald Miller, author of the critically acclaimed Blue Like Jazz, comes a gut-wrenching honest look at growing up without a father. In his uniquely compelling style, Miller (and John MacMurray--the man who taught Donald many of the lessons his dad never did) reflects on what it is a father might have told him about identity, women, money, spirituality, fatherhood and more. Through Millers personal narrative and MacMurrays wisdom, children of absent fathers will discover how to pick up the broken pieces of a fatherless childhood...and put them back together.

Father and son bonding quotes reflect the unique yet comfortable relationship between these family members. A father and son understand each other well, and they are much more willing to learn from each other than with other family members. A father and his son bonds through more actions and fewer words. From young, the father brings his son out on ball games, teaches him to play soccer and how a car works. He understands the interests that the young boy might have and is more than willing to teach him the ways of a man.
