In 1989, Cork Graham came back from four years of fighting in the last proxy battle of the Cold War. The psychological effects were crippling. Recalling how healing solitary confinement had been for him while in prison during his late-teens in Vietnam, the story described in The Bamboo Chest, Cork rekindledl a dream that had haunted him throughout his time in war.
Packing a VW van with hunting rifles, shotguns and fishing rods, those pieces of equipment he knew required to live off the land in the wilds of Alaska, Cork headed north. The story of a hunt is part of a major compilation.Compiled by editor Dr. James A. Swan, The Sacred Art of Hunting: Myths, Legends, and Modern Mythos brings together the writings and art by such notable authors in the field of outdoor writing. One of the stories, Moose Hunt, Healing Hunt is the story of a pivotal point in Cork’s life.
