COGAN'S WOODS Cogan's Woods is a fond remembrance of a journey taken each August in the family Mercury, with the author and his father cruising toward dawn and the big woods in the imagined country of Belden County, Kentucky. While on these hunting trips, the father would convey his legacy to the boy as they explored the foggy woods in the hills above the Ohio River and the nearby town of Persimmon Gap. 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. In the end, what settles into the author's heart is this simple mantra, shared with him first by an old gravedigger through a haze of lantern smoke and then years later by his dying father in a darkened room: "It's important to remember, it's so important to remember."REVIEWSA celebration of cherished things.
