It's a refreshing way read a book; the narrator seeming to be telling a story to a child. You not only depict the nature of Uncle Wil very well, but also that of the storyteller. His awe and almost-disbelief laces the way he speaks of the man.

There are only a few grammars, probably just some typos. I usually try to give constructive criticism in my comments, but I don't think I'm qualified to critique this just yet. Although, I'd like to hear a little more on what Uncle Wil looks like. Haggard and grim? Rugged and handsome?

I was reminded of the All Creatures Great and Small series, one of my favorites.

I'd love to read more! (and sorry I just wrote you a mini essay - I tend to talk a lot in my comments).
