"Don't Let the Bear Catch'cha" written by Jack Pons has hit book store shelves and Thursday night Pons himself was signing copies at Barnes and Noble in the Tallahassee Mall.
The book details his experiences in the Tallahassee area, including the 30 years Pons spent managing the Ayavalla Plantation. "Many of these things, people would doubt the veracity of them because they couldn't think it could happen to any one person, but I mean, I have been chased by moccasins. I had my arm bitten by an alligator." said Pons.
Pons is 81 years old and in his day he was well known as a sportsman and an expert in agriculture. He said the biggest thing he would like his readers to take from the book is enjoyment. Pons is also the father of Leon County Schools Superintendent, Jackie Pons.
