On Coon Mountain: Scenes from Childhood in the Oklahoma Hills (Modern History Series; 15) by Glen Ross



Coon Mountain lies in the Cookson Hills, where the western edge of the Ozark Plateau reaches in to eastern Oklahoma. We have in this book vivid pictures of doughty pioneer relatives and their bygone way of life, including the well-stocked general store kept by Ross’s kindly storekeeper uncle (who spoke Cherokee as well as English), a remote mountain homestead abandoned to the encroaching wilderness, a missionary meeting in the midst of a summer thunderstorm, and an eerie midnight raccoon hunt in. once-familiar woods transformed by darkness. As Ross grew up, the depression deepened.

Story-telling at its Best Sharon Kisker I truly enjoyed this book of yarns. Most people would probablylike the book, however, it was a nostalgia trip for me. I wasborn and grew up in the same area, just a few years later. Manyof the sites and names were quite familiar "On Coon Mountain" according to Helen M Hahn. I grew up in that area. It was exactly as things were in that time period. Also, so many people mentioned were known to me. I love the book.

A History of Childhood will be an essential introduction to the subject for students of history, the social sciences and cultural studies. I did not learn much history from this book; if you're looking for an engaging overview of childhood in early modern and modern times, I would recommend Steven Mintz's Huck's Raft: A History of American Childhood or something similar.

The history of childhood has been a topic of interest in social history since the highly influential book Centuries of Childhood, published by French historian Philippe Ariès in 1960. He argued "childhood" as a concept was created by modern society. Ariès studied paintings, gravestones, furniture, and school records. He found before the 17th-century, children were represented as mini-adults.

Coon Mountain lies in the Cookson Hills, where the western edge of the Ozark Plateau reaches in to eastern Oklahoma. A part of the Cherokee Nation during Indian Territory days, it was home to a rural community mostly of white and Cherokee farmers by the time Glen Ross was born there in 1929-which could have been 1829, for all the difference twentieth-century industry had made.

The Apotheoses of Lacspor
I live about 10 miles south of Coon Mountain and have driven a school bus around the base of the mountain a number of times.. The author's descriptions of the area are spot on. I especially enjoyed his description of going on a coon hunt and not recognizing anywhere he was at. The end of the book went away from Coon Mountain and was less interesting, but it did not detract enough to make it a "4." It is an excellent story of growing up in the Cookson Hills during the Depression. An aside...the author mentions going to Horn School where two lady missionaries from "back east" were holding meetings. Those ladies didn't retire until the 1980's and one of them is alive, over 100 years old now, living in a Tahlequah nursing home.

another one to send my brother.
