• Chapter 8: Developing a nose for nature

    I’d lost my breakfast over Red River Gorge, fallen off my horse in the Daniel Boone National Forest, and now I was 65 feet in the air with my nose stuck in a woodpecker hole.

    Chloe was the first to notice. “Woody, look at this.” When I didn’t respond, Chloe looked at me.

    “Are you OK, Woody?” Chloe asked.

    Wag, wag.

    “Should I get Mom and Dad?”

    Wag, wag, wag.
