Summary "An evocative memoir of Ellis's yearly squirrel hunts with his father in 1960s Kentucky" ( Publishers Weekly ). In Cogan's Woods , Ron Ellis fondly recalls annual August hunting trips with his father: heading toward the great forests of Kentucky in the family Mercury, exploring the foggy woods and hills above the Ohio River. While they searched for game, Ellis's father imparted his wisdom to his son, passing on a legacy of appreciation for the natural world. This lyrical account of a beloved time and place celebrates a father-son relationship nurtured by a landscape that shapes the men and draws them back year after year. "A celebration of cherished things -- friendship and family, storytelling and nature, the physical senses." -- Rick Bass, author of Why I Came West "Kept fresh by his devotion to quiet, lovely detail." -- Publishers Weekly.
