Gargantuan Gunsite Gossip 3
JEFF COOPER “… was a lifelong student with a passion to impart knowledge. He was the ultimate teacher. In the Marine Corps, (he) learned to write and he came to understand that ‘if you don’t write it down, it never happened!’ Thus he formed the habit of writing down his experiences, his studies of various and sundry things and his thoughts and opinions of what he learned from it all. It is a blessing for his posterity that he did so.” —Lindy Cooper Wisdom, from “A Tribute to my Father”
Gargantuan Gunsite Gossip Volume 3 is the third and final volume of the series. It covers the years 2001 through 2006, marking the 26th year of monthly issues of Jeff Cooper’s newsletter. This volume is particularly interesting in that it covers the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent conduct of America’s military and cultural response.
The Gunsite Gossip newsletters contained Jeff Cooper’s thoughts on firearms, training trends, the activities of friends and associates, analyses of real-world firearm techniques as he received firsthand data from the field, philosophical musings, cultural commentaries, literary reviews, thoughts on Nature, hunting, morality, ethics, and political and social trends in modern America.
These writings provide an invaluabe insight into the mind of Colonel Cooper, one of the most original thinkers of the 20th century.
The artwork by his friend and longtime collaborator Paul Kirchner is, as always, wonderful. This edition includes a Preface by his grand-daughter Amy Heath Lovato; an Afterword by Janelle Cooper, his beloved wife and lifelong friend; and a Tribute by his daughter, Lindy Cooper Wisdom, the publisher and editor-in-chief of Wisdom Publishing. This is a handsomely designed, high quality paperback, printed on acid-free paper.
