In Cogan’s Woods Ron Ellis fondly recalls annual August hunting trips with his father: heading towards 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.
