Jamie Dacyczyn (readsintrees) | 264 comments Posting for a coworker:

He is looking for a book that he read in paperback about 6 years ago, and doesn't think it was too old at that time, so probably published between 6-15 years ago.

It was about a father and son relationship. The father was a Jesuit priest . The son (for some reason) traveled from western New York to Detroit and then beyond to logging camps in Canada. The father ended up following the son, and so the book was largely about their relationship. There were lots of beautiful descriptions of the forests.

Other detail: the cover had a picture of the upper torso of a man wearing a priest collar, but not showing his face.

It is NOT Barkskins by Annie Proulx, but my coworker said it is similar.

Jamie, can you tell us about the boy's mother and her relationship with the father?

Jamie Dacyczyn (readsintrees) | 264 comments Alas, I cannot. These are literally the only details my coworker remembers. I grilled him pretty hard before posting.
