Of Woods & Waters: A Kentucky Outdoors Reader, edited by Ron Ellis, contains a wealth of outdoors writing from more than 50 Kentucky authors. From thoughtful and informative essays to moving short stories and poetry, the anthology includes words that will appeal to every reader. Though the subjects of the individual pieces range from hunting and fishing to hiking and canoeing, they are held together by a common thread: the reverence and respect Kentuckians hold for the land and the creatures that inhabit it. Even as hunters and fishers take their quarry, the idea of taking only ones fair share is emphasized many times over. Of Woods & Waters is not only a good introduction to many well-known authors and new talents in Kentucky, but also an informative tour of many parts of the state from a wildlife and sporting perspective.
