Editorial Reviews

Ray Childs performs this moving work about the unique bond between father and son, set in the Kentucky backwoods.

Written by Ron Ellis, this touching memoir recounts the ways in which those beloved forests shaped his relationship with his father over the course of many years. There is at once an elegaic and a joyful quality to this work as Ellis celebrates all that his father taught him, and Childs handles its moments of intense feeling with great skill, achieving a kind of emotional liftoff. This meditative audiobook about nature, and the nature of parenthood, resonates deeply, and is not to be missed.

Publisher's Summary

This lyrical account of a beloved time and place celebrates a father-son relationship. In Cogan’s Woods, Ron Ellis fondly recalls annual August hunting trips with his father: heading toward the great forests of Kentucky in the passenger seat of the family Mercury, exploring the foggy woods and hills above the Ohio River. While they searched for game, Ellis’ 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.

Like I was there.

This book was wonderful. The author's style really takes you there, hunting in 1960s Kentucky. I have found many good hunting books on audible and this is one of my favorites. Ray Childs is also one of my favorite narrators. If you enjoyed his narration, check out his other narrated hunting book by Gene Hill.

Hope story was as good as everyone said?

What do you think your next listen will be?

A source where I can purchase and OWN the MP3 file for use on all of my equipment, at any time and without streaming data. Purchase locks you into their apps and online purchase!!!!Will not purchase from the again.
