The Coon Dog Chronicles

... am inspired to write of things that I witness—a sunset, a sunrise, a lonely hitchhiker with a skinny hound. But there was something about her story that traveled directly from her lips to my heart. A path seldom taken.

"The Coon Dog Chronicles" are a varied assortment of events and experiences that have marked some sort of strange turning point in my life. Why these particular stories I haven't a clue. A brown paper bag, a three-legged horse that refused to give up, three wild dogs that only wanted a friend. A brief talk with the wind. An old cowboy's last rodeo. The heart wrenching account of a friend's tribute to a dying daddy. It has occurred to me that these and other similar events have formed the substance of what I perceive to be my soul. Hopefully you will enjoy an identify with some of these. Possibly they will remind you of events in your life. And you will realize that such is the stuff of which we are made. Pieces of my heart have been lost along the way. For those I will continue to search. Adios Rj

Don Lerch was born and raised in Schuyler County, Illinois. He began coon hunting as a young boy and continued until he was no longer able to go. As a young boy, coon hunting was a necessity for meals, as there were nine other siblings, and the hides were as important because they would provide money for cloths, shoes, groceries or whatever might be needed for the family. Don and his wife Char retired in 2005 to spend more time together. He lost her in 2006 shortly after retirement. Although she was not a coon hunter, she was a rock of support throughout their marriage. The have two children and seven grandchildren. Don published his first book in 2012 and the response was so great for another one, be began gathering stories and went to work again. These stories generate from six different counties, Adams, Brown, Cass, Fulton, McDonough and Schuyler and span from the 1930's till present day. You will read about heartbreaking losses, mule riding, trying to cross the river without a plug in the boat, forgetting the gun, getting lost and some hunts you wish you had been along for the ride. The thrill of the hunt is priceless. Although Don is no longer able to hunt, the "fever" is still there, and as long as their are coon hunters, there will be stories, and he will listen.

Dear readers, this book is written about personal experiences and growth in eighty-five years of life. I’ve been putting it on paper for the last thirty to forty years, and that is what you hold in your hand. What this book hopefully will accomplish is to inspire and enlighten. In the process of reading these shared life stories, whether it brings a smile to your face or perhaps a tear in your eye, it is in the same manner that it did to us while living the stories out in real life. The stories also will describe some of the Amish culture and beliefs. Each story is true, even the ones that seem to be unbelievable. The stories are of experiences that have happened from youth to adulthood. The lessons learned here are invaluable to all—young, old, women, or men. Also included in this book are religious beliefs that have changed and developed over the years. Once you have read even one line of this book, or if you read it from cover to cover and found it inspiring, praise God and give him the glory. In the name of Jesus Christ, his bond servant.

It was a simpler time as widower Jacob Ernst struggles to raise his two young sons, Nathan and Mead, on their modest farm. They’ve grown up listening to the nighttime songs of hounds in the pursuit of the wily ringtail. Chasing raccoon through darkened hills, Jacob teaches his sons the legends of their hometown and a deep respect for all woodland creatures. Hunting and the lessons taught keep the Ernst family together. And the brothers bond with their dogs—loyal to one another until the end. For this is Painted Post—a storied place where the lessons of life, love, and death play out beneath its mighty oaks. But worlds collide. Evil follows the Ernst family and their hounds into these mystical hills. The scourge of the illegal drug trade, coupled with the treachery of one of their own, leads to an inevitable showdown. Some will learn that not all of Painted Post’s vivid tales are pure legend, and this rugged woodland will wield its own brutal justice. For in the darkest hollows, solid bonds are forged.

The glory and romance of archery culminated in England before the discovery of America. There, no doubt, the bow was used to its greatest perfection, and it decided the fate of nations. The crossbow and the matchlock had supplanted the longbow when Columbus sailed for the New World. It was, therefore, a distinct surprise to the first explorers of America that the natives used the bow and arrow so effectively. In fact, the sword and the horse, combined with the white man's superlative self-assurance, won the contest over the aborigines more than the primitive blunderbuss of the times. The bow and arrow was still more deadly than the gun. With the gradual extermination of the American Indian, the westward march of civilization, and the improvement in firearms, this contest became more and more unequal, and the bow disappeared from the land. The last primitive Indian archer was discovered in California in the year 1911.

The story is set in rural Louisiana in the 1950s and describes the antics of young boys growing up in the South where family, hard work and a belief in God are important. It is comical by nature as it describes their attempts at relieving the drudgery and boredoms that come with living. The story follows the life of the Britton family in Catahoula Parish and their interactions with neighbors and friends. The main characters of the story are Snooks Britton and his brother Lil’Ray. Trouble seems to always follow Lil’Ray but generally lands on anyone with him. There is a bear hunt disguised as a bear hunt that turns into an encounter with a wild hog. Snooks, Lil’Ray and their friends manage to burn down an illegal whiskey operation that is tied to the Louisiana Mafia. The area is rural and poor so not only do the people work to make a living; they work hard to entertain themselves. Some of these attempts backfire creating laughable situations that make for years of good yarns at social gatherings.
