In Ghost Buck: One Man’s Family and Its Hunting Traditions, Dean Bennett uses his formidable knowledge to add personal depth and poignancy to a multi-generational tale that explores the erosion of public land use, the degradation of the environment, and the changing rural culture in the Northeast since the 1800s.

Using in-depth records from his family’s hunting journal, including photographs and letters dating back to the 1800s and a detailed camp register from 1936 to the present, Dean Bennett tells of the changes that have affected hunting and the landscape in western Maine since his boyhood. Combining his skills as an illustrator and storyteller, Bennett skillfully weaves memoir, natural history, politics, and emotion into a volume chock-full of information about hunting in a changing world. This is not a book about how to hunt, but rather a paean to the traditions of a family and a rural and nature-centric lifestyle that will ring true to hunters and non-hunters alike. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs and line drawings by the author.
